Provenance / History : The Saturday People, a story illustration published in the October 1966 issue of McCall's magazine, tells the tale of a golden-haired thirteen year old named Leslie who thrives on the excitement of her mid-Manhattan world. Leslie, a keen observer of life, has an active imagination that sometimes enlarges upon reality, adding interest to day to day existence as famous and fantastic figures dance among her private thoughts. Famous individuals move through Rockwell's image from left to right, while the not-so-famous (including the artist himself and his wife Molly in cameo appearance) walk from right to left. Moving from left to right include actor David McCallum, New York City Mayor John Lindsay, soprano Maria Callas, actor Sean Connery, pianist Van Cliburn, drummer Ringo Starr, Prince Philip of England, New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller, comedian Jonathan Winters, composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein, and actor Tallulah Bankhead. Purchased lithograph from The Upstairs Gallery on February 17, 1974 which came with a Certificate of Authenticity stating artists name, title and that it is an artists proof from an edition of 200.

Norman Rockwell - United States
Art Brokerage: Norman Rockwell American Artist: b. 1894-1978. An enormously popular illustrator, American artist Norman Rockwell specialized in warm and humorous scenes of everyday small-town life. The cover of The Saturday Evening Post was Norman Rockwell's showcase for over forty years, giving him an audience larger than that of any other artist in history. Over the years he depicted there a unique collection of Americana, a series of vignettes of remarkable warmth and humor. In addition, Norman Rockwell painted a great number of pictures for story illustrations, advertising campaigns, posters, collotypes, calendars, and books. As Rockwell's personal contribution during World War II, Rockwell painted the famous "Four Freedoms" posters, symbolizing for millions the war aims as described by President Franklin Roosevelt.
