Sunrise Sketch

1965

Pencil drawing on paper.

OKB-1 - Special Design Bureau 1

The first artwork created in space, a small yet remarkable view of a sunrise drawn as Alexei Leonov was hurtled around Earth on board a tiny Voskhod 2 spacecraft, is to leave Russia for the first time.


Leonov was awarded a Hero of the Soviet Union distinction after becoming the first person to walk in space in 1965. On the same mission, Leonov, an enthusiastic and talented artist, drew the view of the sunrise. Given his circumstances, it was astonishing.
