Norman Rockwell Portrait of Nixon

1960 signed Norman Rockwell portrait of Richard Nixon, done for the cover of the “Saturday Evening Post.” Charcoal on paper drawing measuring 16″ x 20.75″. Signed to lower right with the artist’s initials, “NR.” This portrait was a study for the 5 November 1960 cover of the Saturday Evening Post, which appeared amidst the presidential race one week after Rockwell’s cover portrait of Kennedy.  Nixon portrait is in very good condition, with pinholes scattered along the edges, and remnants of adhesive from scotch tape scattered along the extreme edges (we can help you evaluate the condition of your Jessie Willcox Smith Illustration art). Corners of sheet fit into tissue pockets on backing. This study is all the more exceptional as it is the only remaining item from the Nixon-Rockwell portrait session, beyond the final portrait itself. Kennedy’s portrait, on the other hand, was lithographed in a limited edition of 2,500 and is therefore far more common than this portrait, which poignantly captures the subject’s personality that Rockwell is so famous for. Accompanied by 5 November 1960 copy of Saturday Evening Post featuring portrait on cover.  Sold for $24,000.
