Rockwell Painting Long Thought to Be Copy Sells for $1.6 million
This is What's Trending Today...
Norman Rockwell is considered one of America's most famous artists of the 20th century.
He was known for painting traditional and small-town American scenes. His subjects included sports, war and images of American culture, such as a Thanksgiving dinner or a family praying together.
Today, people who own original Norman Rockwell paintings can sell them for a lot of money.
A family in Texas had enjoyed their Rockwell image for many years. They thought the picture hanging above their fireplace was a copy – not an original painting.
But recently, a member of the family discovered the truth – the piece was in fact a signed Norman Rockwell masterpiece.
It shows a group of baseball umpires looking up at the sky while deciding whether to cancel a game due to rain. Rockwell painted it as a study, a smaller work created in preparation for his famous piece "Tough Call" in 1948.
Rockwell gave the study to one of the umpires featured in the piece. The image remained in the family. His completed "Tough Call" sits in America's Baseball Hall of Fame.
Once family members received confirmation the piece was a real, signed original, they decided to list it with an auction company.
Chris Ivy is director of Sports Memorabilia at Heritage Auctions, which took in the painting. He said it was "remarkable" to find such an important Norman Rockwell original after so many years.
It was also remarkable how much money the painting brought during the recent auction in Dallas, Texas.
The company had predicted the masterpiece would bring in about $300,000. So nearly everyone was surprised when the painting sold for $1.6 million to an unnamed collector.
And that's What's Trending Today.
