PESEK L., An Artist in Modern Times: On Extraterrestrial Landscapes, Leonardo, Vol.5, pp.297-300, 1972

The author discusses the uncertain meaning of the terms modern and freedom whenever applied but especially in art. He is of the view that neither of the terms have much significance, although they are so frequentlyused.

His outlook is the result of painting for many years representationallandscapes of the planets of the solar system. He describes the problems he has encountered in making such paintings. He defends his conviction thatpaintings of this kind still have value, in spite of close-up photographs now available of the lunar surface and better ones of Mars than could be obtained before the space age by means of telescopes on the Earth. Furthermore,he continues to obtain aesthetic inspiration from extraterrestrial sources.
