Ode to Norman Rockwell

I was watching a documentary on Norman Rockwell last week and saw one of his illustrations for the first time – it was called “The Connoisseur”.  It was featured in early 1962 as one of his 322 covers of the Saturday Evening Post.  I hadn’t seen this artwork before, but it immediately reminded me of a photograph I took in a small museum in Georgia earlier this year.  Not exactly the same, but brought a quick smile…
