The Spectrum Tale, 1989
Acrylic and casein on board
24 x 32 in.
Signed and dated lower right
John Berkey is one of the most respected science fiction artists of all time--and with good reason as many of Berkey's iconic science fiction images were the first to depict in realistic fashion just what the future might hold. This large painting is one of the artist's best known and most impressive spaceship works and was acquired directly from the artist in 1991, shortly after its completion. It is the featured painting in Berkey's The Art of John Berkey retrospective art book, reproduced as a full-bleed image across the two page title page, as a large two page spread (pp. 70-71), and finally as the back cover image. Truly this is one of Berkey's finest pieces.
