    Andrei Sokolov - Fahrenheit 451 Illustration Original Art (undated). Andrei Sokolov can be rightly called the dean of Russian space art. This enormously prolific and influential artist has been active for decades in promoting the recognition of space art both in his own country and abroad. He works closely with the cosmonauts, and has visited the Baikonur launch facility many times. "Space exploration," says Sokolov, "is the most impressive achievement of mankind; it's the forefront of human knowledge. The chief and only theme of my artistic activity is space, the universe, and cosmonautics." This unpublished painting was created by Sokolov for Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. A handsome piece with an image area measures 11.75" x 16," is beautifully matted and in Excellent condition.
