This limited edition color collotype print entitled Family Tree measures 25 x 19 inches and is hand signed by Norman Rockwell in pit pen in the lower right. The print is in excellent condition with vibrant color and detail. In 1959, Rockwell began telling his life story to his son Tom Rockwell, who was ghostwriting his autobiography, Norman Rockwell: My Adventures as an Illustrator. Recording his family history may have inspired Rockwell to create Family Tree. He loved the idea of having the "all American" boy descend from a pirate and his stolen Spanish Princess. "Everybody, " he said, "had a horse thief or two in his family."
