NORMAN ROCKWELL
Rockwell signed this letter to Doubleday and Company regarding a reprint of one of his books of art
Typed letter signed "Norman/Rockwell" in blue ink. Also with two signatures at top in unknown hands. 1 page, 7x10½ on Rockwell's personalized stationery. Addressed to: Mr. William G. Thompson, Doubleday & Company, Inc., 277 Park Avenue, New York, New York. With 8½x11 unsigned copy of a letter addressed to Norman Rockwell by the firm of Weil, Gotshal and Manges allowing Rockwell to negotiate for the production of a book of his art. In full: "Dear Mr. Thomspon: Thanks for your reply and, when I get requests, I will say, as you told me, that the ALBUM will be reprinted next fall. I am enclosing copy of a letter from Curtis Publishing Company, which may help you to nudge them along." Rockwell would paint portraits of the presidential candidates in 1968. 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. Both letters have been folded in three and unfolded. Signed letter has crease in upper left corner, stains on left and bottom edge and staple holes in upper left corner. Unsigned letter has torn staple horn in upper left corner. Otherwise in fine condition.
