In A Most Beautiful Moon, Alan Bean, the astronaut turned artist, has undertaken two great missions in his life. The first was to go to the moon and walk upon its surface. The second was to record the event which he describes as one that will never happen again in human history – “humankind’s first visit to another world.”
In this one of a kind piece, Bean paints the view he remembers of seeing the moon close up and getting closer, an intimate vision of an old earthly friend.
