Alan Bean


Alan Bean

Alan Bean, born on the 15th of March 1932 in Texas, was a trained U. S. naval aviator
and test pilot when he was selected in 1963 for NASA's third astronaut group. In 1969
he made his first space flight. As the Lunar Module Pilot of
  Apollo 12, he became the
fourth man in history to walk on the lunar surface, preceded only by Neil Armstrong,
Buzz Aldrin and Pete Conrad.

Often Alan Bean is described as an artist who flew to the Moon, but that's a stereotypical idea. He
walked on the Moon and later flew aboard Skylab as a highly trained astronaut who was completely
focused on the success of his mission: no time for sketches, no time for little paintings. It would be a
couple of years after his Skylab flight before he began to express his own memories and feelings, as
well as
the memories of his fellow moonwalkers in an artistic manner.

Bean's development as a painter began when he took his first art class while he was a test pilot at
Patuxent River, Maryland. Among the early works are flower motifs, abstract flight motifs, and
copies of paintings by Cezanne, Degas, and Greacen.
