Moon Rovers by Alan Bean shows Jim Irwin and how he relates to tourists the world over who immortalize their trip by taking photos and videos, so it’s no surprise that tourists out of the world do the same.
In Moon Rovers, artist Alan Bean portrays astronaut Jim Irwin of Apollo 15 as he films a memorable moment during the 1971 mission. In the reflection off of Irwin’s visor, we see Commander Dave Scott trying out the ultimate new automobile, the Lunar Land Rover.
When astronaut/artist Alan Bean first started painting, he experimented with landscapes on earth. He never imagined that, only a few years later in 1969, he would be walking on a completely different surface — the Moon. Nor did he foresee a second career as an artist, focusing on the landscape of the moon, as well as images of the earth seen from outer space.
