NORMAN ROCKWELL
The prolific American artist signs his name and draws an image of a dog on this typed letter from 1972
Original Art on Typed Letter Signed: "Norman Rockwell", in brown felt tip. 5¾x7¾ letter affixed to 6¾x8¾ cardboard mount covered in black paper. Personal letterhead reading "Norman Rockwell/Stockbridge/Massachusetts" dated December 12, 1972. The artist draws his famous image of a dog under his signature. In full: "Dear Billy Ingram: Thank you for your very king letter and for all the nice things you said in it. I am afraid I do not have a sketch I could send you, but below is my little dog drawing. I appreciate your interest in writing to me. Sincerely yours, Norman Rockwell". Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) is an American artist and illustrator 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. Horizontal crease through center from folding. 1 inch adhesive residue on verso with light show-through on letterhead in top margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
