Product Description

Details

Norman Rockwell's Fair Catch (Mermaid) Saturday Evening Post cover August 20, 1955.

Standard size postcard measures 4" inches by 6" printed on heavy weight card stock.

During his student years, Rockwell sometimes escaped to a Provincetown, Massachusetts, seaside resort for rest and to sketch outdoors. The idea for Mermaid formed from memories of these early experiences An 81-year-old Gloucester lobsterman posed for the painting, but, imagining the turmoil that might ensue if a neighbor were to pose nude, Rockwell hired a professional model from New York for the mermaid. For the fish, Rockwell purchased a 12-pound pollack from the Berkshire Fish Company. He photographed it and then gave it to John Malumphy, who served it in his restaurant for two days.
