NORMAN ROCKWELL
Responding to a request that he autograph a book, Rockwell says that doesn't have enough time, adding "so I am sending you an autograph that can be placed in the book wherever you want it."
Typed Letter signed: "Norman/Rockwell", 1 page, 5¾x7¾. Stockbridge, Massachusetts, 1970 November 20. To Mr. Paige. In full: "I have found that it is impossible to have people send or bring the large book published by Harry Abrams to be autographed. I just wouldn't have any time to keep up with my schedule of work, so I am sending you an autograph that can be placed in the book wherever you want it. I thank you very much for your interest. Sincerely yours," 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. Normal mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
