Norman Rockwell Oil on Canvas Painting of Richard Nixon — The National Portrait Gallery Study for ”Mr. President (Richard Nixon)”, Painted in 1968

Norman Rockwell oil on canvas painting of Richard Nixon, signed ”Norman / Rockwell” at lower right. Painting is the study for ”Mr. President (Richard Nixon)”, which resides in the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, and was published in the 4 February 1969 issue of ”Look” magazine, captioned ”Weighed, yet buoyed, by the American past and present, Richard M. Nixon, 37th President, faces the future in this Rockwell portrait”. 

Rockwell painted this study in late 1968 of then President-Elect Richard Nixon, a man whose portrait he found ”elusive” but whose features here are unmistakenly Nixon, revealing at the same time both the guardedness and warmth of the 37th President. As the premiere portraitist of the 20th century, one would expect no less from Rockwell. Oil on canvas measures 14” x 11”. Provenance is from Judy Goffman Fine Art of New York, and then subsequently the Charles E. Sigety Collection. Exhibited at the Mississippi Museum of Art in ”Norman Rockwell: The Great American Storyteller” from 2 March-15 May 1988, no. 64. Painting is in very good condition, with a stretcher bar mark along upper edge. Wax lined, with no inpainting. Sold for $125,000.

Sir John Tenniel Illustration Used in the First Edition of ”Through the Looking-Glass” — With a Presentation Signing by Tenniel From ”Christmas 1876”

Sir John Tenniel original illustration from ”Through the Looking Glass”, the sequel to the enormously successful ”Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. This illustration appears on page 201 of the first edition of ”Looking Glass”, done to illustrate the text, ”She was standing before an arched doorway over which were the words QUEEN ALICE in large letters…” A presentation inscription by Tenniel is written to the lower margin, ”With Mr. Tenniel’s kind regards / Christmas 1876”. Pencil drawing was done sometime between 1869-1871 when Tenniel again collaborated with Lewis Carroll in illustrating his novel, an undertaking that Tenniel first rejected due to the time-consuming nature of the work: after drawing preliminary sketches, Tenniel would transfer the artwork onto woodblocks using tracing paper and then finish shading on the blocks. The Brothers Dalziel would then produce engravings from the blocks. Tenniel at first rejected Carroll’s offer to illustrate ”Looking Glass”, but ultimately relented as Carroll could find no other illustrator that matched Tenniel’s ”grotesque” interpretation of the fantasy creatures he envisioned. Drawing measures 3.25” x 4.5”, archivally matted and framed to 11.25” x 12.75”. Very light foxing to margins and light uniform toning, overall near fine condition. Sold for $37,500.
