Book by Ron Miller Frederick C Durant III
"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
Chesley Bonestell was, without a doubt, the most influential space artist of all time. From a childhood interest in astronomy, Bonestell drew on his expert skills as a draughtsman to create inspired paintings of the planets. Considered the dean of space artists, Bonestell's work appered in hundreds of magazines, from Life to Popular Mechanics, bringing his visions to an avid public for several decades from the mid-1940s onwards. His work is still breathtaking today, still the paradigm which other space and astronomical artists strive to match. Some of his paintings - of the lunar surface, or Saturn as seen from Titan - are classics and, although our knowledge of these remote parts of our universe has overtaken Bonestell's visions, they have never been superseded as works of art. Edited by Ron Miller and Frederick C. Durant III, this glorious collection of over 300 illustrations covering all facets of Bonestells' art and carcer, has an accompanying full-length biographical commentary by Miller. As the definitive book of Bonestell's art, this is a treasure that belongs on every shelf.Biografía del autor:
