Catalogue Note

Reminiscent of the "УТРО ЛУНОХДА-1" [MORNING OF LUNOKHOD-1] painting done together with cosmonaut Leonov in 1970, the present work juxtaposes past scenes of the Lunokhod-1 lunar rover with a future concept of what the moon could look like once man has set up colonies, and uses lunar rovers for everyday tasks. This painting was used for a stamp design in the USSR in 1972 (Michel No. 4046).
