NORMAN ROCKWELL and MOLLY (MRS. NORMAN) ROCKWELL
Molly Rockwell writes a letter on behalf of Norman to a friend offering condolences after the death of his close friend.
Manuscript Letter Signed: "Norman/and/Molly", 2p, 5½x7¾. Stockbridge, Massachusetts, 1977 August 22. Including mailing envelope, 5¾x4. Usual cancellation marks. Lightly soiled. On his imprinted letterhead to "Dear Pete". In full: "Last evening we heard through Bob Bixler that Sev had died last December. Norman is not well & not able to write or telegraph at present, but he has asked me to send you his sympathy & affection. We well remember how truly devoted & helpful she had been just before you both were with us in the 'Stagecoach' enterprise. We realize you must miss Sev terribly, & particularly now, as we hear from Bob Bixler, that you have again been in & out of hospital. That, too, is very bad news, & we hope you are better now and able to go back to your old life in the studio. With happy recollections & all best wishes, Fondly," 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. Three items. Fold crease not at signature. Stain at upper right corner on page two not near signatures. Otherwise, fine condition.
