Beloved artist Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) is known for his paintings that reflect scenes of everyday American life and especially for his cover illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post.

Condition: Mailing fold lines, it had been stored in one of those ubiquitous “sticky” page photo albums and the glue from the page has migrated to the recto of the letter leaving light tidy stripes, otherwise very good condition with a large, bold signature.
