Robert Theodore McCall (December 23, 1919 - February 26, 2010) was an American artist, renowned for his conceptual works of space art. Born in Columbus, Ohio, McCall was fascinated by airplanes and the Moon as a child. He attended an art school in Columbus and served in the Army Air Forces as a bombardier instructor during World War II. After the war, McCall found work in Chicago and New York, creating illustrations for magazine articles and advertisements. McCall then went to Florida to paint a commission for the U.S. Air Force in 1957. His work for Life magazine drew the attention of NASA, who hired him and two other artists to help promote the space program in 1962. This job launched his career. His body of work numbers in the hundreds and includes a six-story tall mural at the National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. McCall married Louise Harrap in 1946, with whom he had two daughters.
