Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

“These paintings capture the spirit of our highest hopes and aspirations. As a nation we set our sights to accomplish a near-impossible goal of walking on the moon. Only one artist was present to bear witness and tell the story.”—Buzz Aldrin

“Alan Bean and his astroartistry recreate the drama and excitement of man's exploration of the moon as could only be chronicled by one who had been there.”—Neil A. Armstrong

“What one must understand about Al Bean is he is the only artist to have ever walked on the moon. No poet has ever been to the lunar surface, nor any journalist, architect, nor songwriter. In the realm of the arts, it has fallen upon Bean to be the one moonwalker to turn hard data brought back from the moon into something other than numbered photographs. The images that Al has committed to canvas, then, are important, inspiring, and priceless works of art. Not only has he painted the moon, he has been there.”—Tom Hanks

Es fehlen einem fast die Worte zu diesem gelungenen Werk:

Nur zwölf Menschen war es bisher vergönnt, unseren Trabanten
zu betreten und Erinnerungen mit nach Hause zu bringen...

... 12 von 6,8 Milliarden ...

Zufall oder Fügung, das einer von Ihnen - Alan Bean - die Gabe des
Malens besitzt?!? Auf alle Fälle eine Bereicherung für jeden, der von
der Geschichte des Mondes fasziniert ist.

Einige der Bilder sind auf einer Leinwand gemalt, auf welcher der Künstler
erst einen schwachen Abdruck seines Astronautenstiefels "gestempelt" hat, und
darüber das eigentliche Motiv gelegt hat.

Ich bin begeister von diesem Buch, jede Seite eine andere Facette.

Danke an Alan Bean, der auf diese Art jeden der mag an seinen persönlichen
Erinnerungen teilhaben lässt.

Finaler Tipp:
Dieses Buch geniessen bei Pink Floyd Musik (Dark side of the moon)
und abtauchen in die unendlichen Weiten...

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe mir dieses Buch gekauft, nachdem ich Alan Bean bei einem seiner Vorträge zum Thema Mondlandung kennengelernt habe. Die im Buch abgebildeten Gemälde stammen alle aus Alan Bean's Erinnerung an seinen Flug zum Mond mit Apollo 12 im Jahr 1969.

Am Ende des Buches sind zu jedem Bild einige Worte von Alan Bean über dessen Bedeutung zu finden. Während seines Vortrages ging er ebenfalls auf seine Bilder ein und erzählte noch detailierter wie einzelne Werke zu Stande kamen und welche Gedanken er mit ihnen verbindet. Das wird im Buch ansatzweise ähnlich beschrieben, aber es fehlt natürlich der Platz um ins Detail zu gehen.

Eines der Lieblingsbilder von Alan Bean heißt "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" und zeigt eine Szene auf dem Mond, bei der Pete Conrad dem gestürzten Alan Bean wieder auf die Beine hilft. Charles "Pete" Conrad war Alan Beans bester Freund - er kam Jahre später bei einem Motorradunfall ums Leben. Der Name des Gemäldes beruht auf dem gleichnamigen Song der "Hollies", welcher 1969 kurz vor dem Start von Apollo 12 herauskam und damals sehr bekannt war. Alan Bean schreibt in seinem Buch über Pete Conrad: "Pete and I had been friends since he was my performance instructor at the Naval Test Pilot School, but we were never closer than the 31 hours we spent on the Ocean of Storms in November 1969. I miss him every day."

Für mich war die Begegnung mit diesem Menschen einfach nur "mindblowing!" und ich bin dankbar, dass ich dies erleben durfte. Heute sehe ich mir Alan Bean's Gemälde an, höre den Song der Hollies und bin auf dem Mond...

Starry Night 20. Juli 2009
Von dream factory - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
..Van Gogh 'Starry Night' 1889
..Klee 'Moonrise' 1915
..Ernst 'Petrified City' 1935
..Pollack 'Moon Woman' 1942

Many an artist has been inspired by the moon hanging silently overhead. But one artist has a unique perspective on this eternal muse. Alan Bean has walked on it's ghostly landscape. Felt it's pull below his feet. Closed his eyes and felt it's sweet caress. Looked up to see the Earth hanging silently 230,000 miles overhead.

Al Bean was different from most of the other astronauts. They lived for speed and adventure. They liked to hunt or fine tune their sports cars. Bean liked to paint. Never mind that Florida Gold corvette he had. A happy joking gentleman renowned for toasting the Apollo 12 camera. He accidentally pointed it directly at the sun. The camera's delicate receptor tube fried instantly. Ruining it for the rest of us stuck down here. Then later he spent some 54 days up in skylab.

But he really wanted to paint. So paint he did. Realistic and imaginary scenes from various moon missions. Mostly his own (Apollo 12):
'Helping Hands'. He and Conrad dismantle some core tube. 'Home Sweet Home' a sweeping moonscape of the Ocean of Storms with moonlander. A moon self portrait showing himself loping across a crater. 'Houston, We Have a Problem' debris streaming away from the blast. A beautiful 'In Flight' showing Shepard driving a golf ball on the moon. I don't think it went quite that high. But a wonderful moon scape with lander, flag, and craters galore.

And indeed Bean proves to be quite an accomplished artist. His works posses a great feel about them. Good technique, good light adaption. Great color balance (well only he would know that for sure!).

Bean has added an angle to most of his paintings. He has ground up some space suit material and has incorporated it into the paint. The premise being that there is moon dust in the suit and therefore in the painting. He has been known to use a moon pick as one would use a palette knife. And he even imprints his moon boot sole onto the canvas primer. His art does have alot of texture

What can you say. If Pollack could leave his cigarette butts. Then why not moondust.

Alan Bean's unique view 25. Dezember 2009
Von Margaret R. Gill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As one of the few people to ever have the opportunity to set foot on another world, it is lucky that Alan Bean was able to find his talent for painting.
Many times the images we have of those remarkable missions show a relatively bleak and nearly monochromatic moonscape. Bean is able to show us the subtile colors and shades that were not tranferable to the image making of the late 60's and early 70's. He is also able to take us on the flights of fantasy that only the men of his unique calibre are able to ingage. He also tries to share his spirital and personal changes in his visual world.
The paintings are reproduced in a high quality printing, with the colors and images coming through in a vibrant and pleasing way.
All in all an excellent book from a man with a very unique talent and viewpoint.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I am an artist and I can say as fellow artists know - observation and experience add so much to the artwork one creates.... To view a persons work that has been on the Moon and an artist is such an inspiration for me as my passion for astronomy is equal that of art.

This is a wonderful book of observations, feelings and a product of one very talented, fortunate man - and Astronaut and Artist - WOW !!! how unique!!!

My Book on an Island 16. November 2009
Von S. McBee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Alan Bean amazes me every time he releases a new painting, which is fairly often considering the size and scope of his art! I check back to his website often and try to keep up and dream of which order I would buy them in if I were to win a great lottery! Anyone who buys this book has done just that, won a great lottery. Captain Bean is the fourth of twelve moonwalkers and one of the youngest though hitting 80 soon! That's said to state the obvious, "read about an American hero while he's still living and able to give lectures, signings and art shows! Where you can go to an art gallery and see the amazing detail and touches that only he can add to these paintings! One, because he saw it first hand and two, because each of his paintings include bits of moon dust and other artifacts he works into each of his paintings- making it even more than a work of art but a piece of history itself. Back to the book! If given a choice of books to take along with me when I'm to be left alone on an island I want this one! Each day I'll look at one picture and find new intricacies, touches and dynamics. The boot print or tool mark he carved into the canvas before the painting even began. Yes, a real Apollo boot print, real tools from NASA that he used, albeit unsuccessfully, on the moon, bits of particles from the space craft and he even sacrifices bits of his uniform! Trying to find each magical item would be a glorious day! If your wondering, can you see those touches on a glossy printed page the answer is yes- if you look with an observant eye! Then the next year I won't go in the chronological order that he painted each as the book does, I'll try to decide how the trip took place for those 3 best friends! Year after year would pass and yet I'd leave that island with the grandest love and respect for Alan Bean's experience in space and paintings but because I still wouldn't be finished enjoying, devouring, appreciating and continuing to pretend I was there with him as he saw each "picture" in his mind or tells me the joke as to how all 3 crew members are on the moon at the same time in his painting! I wouldn't leave the book behind once rescued, I'd take it back with me, holding it carefully, large palm leaves carefully folded around it to protect the binding so as not to loose a page or a moment in Alan Bean's history. I appreciate his invitation to delve into his brain, the thoughts running through a rookie mind, his moment of awe when he looked back at earth and realized everyone but the 3 of them where on that beautiful planet so far away. His humor would entertain, his experiences teach me and his painting bring color and a depth of beauty few have experienced yet and I would feel a mix of emotions. Wonder who will be the next to return, will they have a different insight into all the wonder there is to see in space? It's a book that will entertain and inspire me for as long as the pages will hold the gorgeous art, until my brain can no longer recall memories at all. We not only owe him a debt of graditude for having the courage to explore the moon but to come home and devote his life tirelessly and endlessly to painting what he, the only astronaut-artist, saw in his travels from the earth to the moon! This book sounds to magical to accomplish what I say it will but it has done that for me, my family and all the students I share his art work with each year! The book is both a history book and an art piece, so much more than a coffee table book!
Since writing this first review I have now purchased 2 of every book he publishes and donate the 2nd to our local school. Besides Buzz and Armstrong they know few other aspects of our journey and race to space. This book keeps their interest because they can see what he saw! Each time I have them draw their own picture of what they think their flight and stay on the moon might look like. Some are almost copies of Capt. Bean's work while others show that they've "seen" what he wanted them to see and took it further with their own minds and imagination. I just know there will be a child touched or inspired by his art, whether it's to follow in his footsteps to the moon or to share the joy of art. Either way Capt. Bean is a part of our history, in our hearts and minds long after we forget the names of the 12 who touched the surface of the moon. He helps each of us experience what we couldn't first hand and inspires younger students to do even more than what he accomplished!
A unique collection of art 9. August 2009
Von Enjolras - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Alan Bean's reason for producing this book was simple: while artists have enthralled us by reproducing natural beauty and historical scenes, no artists ever traveled to the moon. Until Alan Bean himself did on Apollo 12. Bean uses the paintbrush to evoke what it felt like to visit and travel the moon. Many of the paintings evoke a sort of New Frontier nationalism, with astronauts as the iconic cowboys of a Remington painting. One really interesting painting technique he uses is to incorporate parts of the Apollo mission into his actual painting style. For example, to provide texture, sometimes he will paint on a space suit bootprint or a piece of a spacecraft. The paintings themselves look like they have small craters. This creates a visually original effect - one that probably inspired directly by Bean's time exploring the moon.
