Document signed "Norman Rockwell". Also signed by two representatives of The Travelers Insurance Company. 1 page, 8¾x12¼. Hartford, Connecticut, May 20, 1935. This is a trust agreement with Travelers designating his mother Ann. M. Rockwell as the primary beneficiary of his life insurance policy, no. 1876804. Should his mother die, his family - first his wife Mary, then his sons Jarvis and Thomas - would receive the payment from his insurance. American artist and illustrator Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) is best known for his realistic and humorous scenes of small town life in America. He painted over 300 covers for the "Saturday Evening Post" from 1916 to 1965 after beginning his career at age 18 as an illustrator for "Boy's Life". His art, drawn with attention to detail, had an air of simplicity and sentimentality. Rockwell's popularity grew because his art seemed to be, for everyday Americans, a mirror-image of real life. His subjects ranged from American presidents to Mark Twain characters to the man who delivered his mail. Rockwell's work was also published in several other magazines and on numerous calendars, and his paintings portraying "The Four Freedoms" were distributed as morale-builders and to promote the sale of Victory Bonds during WWII. Rockwell published his autobiography, Norman Rockwell, My Adventures as an Illustrator, in 1960. Lightly toned and creased. Bottom is creased and lightly torn. Staple holes in upper left corner. Two torn binder holes and several small holes near top. Page has been folded four times and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
