The Art of Robert McCall

Robert McCall is an artist who has specialised in scenes of space exploration or views of imaginary worlds. I became aware of his work in 1968 when the posters for 2001 – A Space Odyssey went up; Kubrick commissioned the poster art from him. McCall’s web site is here. I see that the artwork of the 2001 space station and the spaceship Orion is there (and I had an original poster of this, which, alas, has got lost over the course of the years). One, to me, surprising omission from his web site is the artwork he did of the interior of the spaceship Discovery. You can see it here (it’s the third painting down). That poster, at least, I have still got. It hangs in the library.  

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
