Alan Bean - Artist and Moonwalker
by Ulrich Lotzmann

I have seen many places in the USA that are related to the Apollo moon landing program and I have visited many space museums that display flown Apollo hardware; but nowhere else have I felt the spirit of Apollo more strongly   and more vividly than in Alan Bean's studio, surrounded by his impressive and inspiring paintings. Each is an eyewitness account of the first human explorations of another celestial body. They are really art 'off this world'.
