A large hand signed and numbered lithograph of “The Young Artist” by Norman Rockwell in original custom frame.
Original oil painting was created for The Saturday Evening Post’s June 4, 1927, cover. Rockwell (b. 1894–1978) had a 47 year career with The Post that began in 1916, making this cover a relatively early one. Lithograph was made in the mid 1970s and is a less commonly reproduced work, especially as a signed artist’s proof edition of this size.
Utterly charming scene depicts a smitten young artist—possibly Rockwell himself—mid-brush stroke as he paints a bright red heart under the declaration “She’s My Baby” on the back of his crush’s oversized duster. A very faithful and finely executed reproduction of the original, with rich coloration and crisp details.
Signed in pencil by the artist at lower right, and numbered 169/200 at lower left. Atelier Ettinger. Arches 100% acid free paper with custom two-color mat and naturally distressed frame.
Sheet size is H 31.5 in. x W 23 in
Per page 41 of the 1972 book “Norman Rockwell: A Sixty Year Retrospective”, the original painting was—at the time of publication—in the collection of Mr. and Mrs. William M. Young,
