This painting has been in the owner’s family for 90 years. The question is, after hearing how much it’s worth, will it remain in the family’s possession much longer? Given to the owner’s grandmother as a gift by Norman Rockwell himself (who was her nephew) this 1919 original oil canvas was used as the cover of a Collier’s Magazine. When the owner brought it in for appraisal on Antiques Roadshow, he knew he had something special — it is, afterall, an original Rockwell — but even he was surprised by the estimated value: $500,000! Get a closer look at this painting in the clip below, and let us know, would you take the money?
