    Description

    David Egge - Venus Painting Original Art (1978). David Egge has painted a detailed scene of sulfur and sulfuric acid clouds as seen from a volcanic rubblefield on Venus. Celebrated for creating detailed, realistic looking paintings. David's work has appeared on the covers of such magazines as Omni, Astronomy, and The Planetary Report, in Carl Sagan's landmark TV series "Cosmos," and on the covers of numerous SF books. This acrylic on board painting, with an image area of approximately 18.5" x 7.25", is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "I found this evocative astronomical scene at one of the big science fiction convention art shows around 1980; it was appealing in an uncomfortable way, as we had just learned beyond doubt that the surface of Venus was not the steamy jungle of speculation, but rather a sulfuric hell so hot that lead would melt on its surface."
