The Artist and the Astronaut by Bruce Helander

Chicago artist Marla Friedman's recent portrait sculpture of the legendary Apollo 13 astronaut Captain James A. Lovell, Jr. follows the historic and time-honored realist tradition. She has had the unique honor to work with the American icon and space pioneer on a number of portraits, both in painting and sculpture, and her portraits of Captain Lovell are in the permanent collection of the Naval Academy Museum, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center.
