NORMAN ROCKWELL & THOMAS ROCKWELL
Rare find ! Father and son sign letter expressing delight and granting permission for reprint!
Typed Letter signed: "Norman Rockwell" and "Thomas Rockwell". 1p. 7¼x10, personal letterhead. Stockbridge Massachusetts. 12 April 1960. To Miss Marjorie Nicholson, The Reader's Digest, Pleasantville, New York. In full: "Dear Miss Nicholson: We are delighted to know that you people are going to use an excerpt from our articles in the Saturday Evening Post. Your certainly have our permission to do so. Sincerely yours," One of America's best-loved artists, Norman Rockwell was famous for his illustrations on the covers of more than 300 issues of the "Saturday Evening Post", for which he began drawing in 1916. 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. Thomas Rockwell (born 1933), the middle son of Norman and his 2nd wife Mary, is an author of books for young readers. He has achieved success and recognition; receiving the Mark Twain Award, The California Young Reader Medal, and the Sequoyah Award for How to Eat Fried Worms (1973). Other publications are: Rackety-bang, and other verses (1969), The Portmanteau Book (1974), How to Fight a Girl (1987) and How to Get Fabulously Rich (1990). Normal mailing folds. Light pencil note (unknown hand) at upper right corner. Fine condition.
