NORMAN ROCKWELL
First Day Cover signed by Rockwell, framed to an overall size of 24x19
FDC signed: "Norman Rockwell", 6½x3½. FDC honoring the 100th Anniversary of City Mail Delivery, 5-cent stamp picturing Rockwell's painting of a postman affixed, postmarked Washington, D.C., October 26, 1963, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. In the year that he designed this stamp, Rockwell also produced a series of paintings of Ben Franklin, which included Ben Franklin's Belles, to illustrate "Poor Richard's Almanac". Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) captured scenes from American life in his magazine covers and illustrations, often noted for their humorous and accurate depictions of 1940's and 1950's life. Rockwell's drawings, however, were skillfully executed with minute attention to detail and were so realistic that they usually resembled photographs rather than paintings. He painted over 300 covers for the "Saturday Evening Post" (1916-1965) after beginning his career at age 18 as an illustrator for "Boy's Life". In addition to his many works for the Post, Rockwell illustrated the "Boy Scout Calendar" from 1926-1976. Rockwell published his autobiography, Norman Rockwell, My Adventures as an Illustrator, in 1960. Fine condition. Minor chips at front of frame, chip on bottom right has splintered. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 24x19.
