Additional Information

Respected in the West for his artwork of trappers, Paul Calle is known to the larger public as the NASA artist who documented the 1969 Apollo mission that would land humans on the moon. Calle was the only artist in the room as Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins prepared for their historic trip into space, and those early sketches informed a whole portfolio of NASA images, including some of the most reproduced stamps ever released by the United States Postal Service. In 1973, Calle turned his attention to the West, where he painted adventure scenes of Native Americans and early American explorers and trappers. Good Hunting shows one of Calle’s most iconic subjects, a trapper identifiable by his red coat fashioned from a Hudson Bay blanket.
