SINGLE & RARE ASTRONAUT AUTOGRAPHS
Straightening our Stripes #4/550
STRAIGHTENING OUR STRIPES #4 was the 30th Apollo Anniversary (1999) print from Alan Bean. In this 1985 painting, Alan once again paints two of his favorite subjects: Our American flag and Neil Armstrong, the first human on the moon. There is only one recently found still picture of Neil on the moon, and that one has Armstrong's back to the camera, stowing equipment. Our loss, but Bean's gain: He is free to paint Neil Armstrong without encumbrance. Here Armstrong deploys the first American flag on the moon, straightening the Stars and Stripes that have been tightly stowed for a quarter million miles.
