Robert ƒ??Bobƒ?? Theodore MCCALL (1919-2010) [The Music Room windows], a pair of original paintings, gouache, watercolor and wash

Robert ‘Bob’ Theodore MCCALL (1919-2010).


[The Music Room windows], a pair of original paintings, gouache, watercolor and wash on artist’s board, each signed ‘McCall’ (one upper left; one upper right), image size: 15 ¼ x 13 3/8 and 14 ¼ x 11 ½ inches. Condition: the skies faded, otherwise excellent (see images), old mounting tape to verso of board (see images).


A beautiful but unusual pair of subjects from an artist who is best known for his futuristic depictions of space and space exploration: “McCall was an illustrator for Life magazine in the 1960s, created promotional artwork for Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey and Richard Fleischer's production Tora! Tora! Tora! and worked as an artist for NASA, documenting the history of the Space Race. McCall was also production illustrator on Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The character Commander William Riker expressed admiration for the work of "Bob McCall" in one episode of the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation.


McCall's work can be found on U.S. postage stamps, and also NASA mission patches such as for Apollo 17. His murals grace the walls of the National Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art, The Pentagon, Epcot, and Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. McCall was also commissioned by The Walt Disney Company to do a painting called "The Prologue and The Promise" for the Epcot attraction, Horizons in 1983. Guests could see the mural at the end of the attraction as they exited.” (Wikipedia).
