     Paul and Chris Calle have garnered international attention through museum exhibitions and their stamp and first day cover designs.  This is not the first collaboration by father and son.  In 1969, Paul designed the US  First Man on the Moon Landing stamp.  In 1989, Chris designed the 20th anniversary US  First Man on the Moon Landing stamp.  Fittingly in 1994 they combined their talents and jointly designed the 25th anniversary stamp.

     Paul Calle is a master painter and known for his amazing realism and historical illustrations chronicalizing America's heritage.  He has documented the exploration of Space in NASA's fine art program and has 37 related stamp designs.  His artwork has been exhibited in the National Gallery of Art, the National Air & Space Museum, the US Department of the Interior, and museums in Russia and Poland.  His original oil paintings have sold in upwards of $80,000 at auction.

     Chris has inherited his father's skill of realism and shares an interest in the Western and Wildlife genre.  He has over 200 international stamp designs and 30 here in the United States. 

     The photos of this painting speak volumes.  It is highly detailed and colorful.  The painting is mixed media on hot press illustration board and was completed in 2004.  Below is a photo of the reverse of the painting giving further details about the commission and copyright information.  The original Certificate of Authenticity will be included in the sale as well as complete provenance.  The painting and frame are in excellent condition.  It is professionally framed in a 3" wide rustic western styled frame and is doubled matted with glass.  It is unsigned.
