The Countdown Continues... with 'The 12 Famous Artists of Christmas'

Famous Artist #7: Norman Rockwell



* Here's a curiosity: an unknown artist (the signature appears to be cropped off - could it be Walter Richards?) paints Norman Rockwell painting Santa Claus for a 1949 Hallmark Cards ad. The text below the illustration reads, "Norman Rockwell is one of many famous artists who have painted Hallmark Christmas cards for you."


* A special show celebrating the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ birth and featuring original Rockwell artworks inspired by the literary giant’s contributions is on right now at the Norman Rockwell Museum!
