Lineman 16.5 x 13 Framed Offset Print

Availability: In stock

Norman Rockwell, American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) advertisement, 1948.

Although Rockwell's illustration would promote the image of AT&T, its effect was meant to be inspirational rather than commercial. In a letter to Rockwell from the ad agency, it was suggested to Rockwell that he portray the lineman on a telephone pole in the act of restoring service after a storm. "The work of the linemen for the Telephone Company," said the account representative, "is filled with opportunities for personal sacrifices and acts which stem only from devotion to national welfare, so that it seems a fitting work to honor by such a painting."

The original oil painting was recently donated to the Norman Rockwell Museum by Verizon.
