Product Description

Details

Limited Edition Signed Print. Saturday Evening Post cover March 4, 1944. Full color offset print measures 25 x 19 inches hand signed in ink by Norman Rockwell. Painted some 60 years before the nation's current tattoo craze, Rockwell's March 1944 Saturday Evening Post cover celebrates the "permanence" of body art. The humorous illustration depicts a sailor who has fallen for several women in his day, and paid tribute to them (if temporarily) on his forearm. Continuing with the theme of the illustration, Rockwell also created a very clever background for the painting, consisting of popular tattoo designs. Created while living in Arlington, Vermont, Rockwell called on his friend and fellow illustrator Mead Schaeffer to pose as the tattoo artist.

The purchase of any limited edition Norman Rockwell print is accompanied by an authenticity certificate signed by our museum director. Purchases come with museum membership and care and handling instructions for the print. Payments may be made through our interest free 10 month layaway plan. All artist proof purchases contribute directly to the museum endowment for the arts. Please ask for more assistance.
