Coming now from the deceased estate of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher it is estimated $ 1.5M for sale by Profiles in History at Calabasas near Los Angeles on October 8, lot 644 here linked on the Invaluable bidding platform.
I introduced it as follows in 2010 :
On May 29, 1926, the Saturday Evening Post celebrates the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence of the United States. Norman Rockwell symbolizes this event by showing Benjamin Franklin, quill pen in hand for signing the document, his face turned towards the viewer. This figure on a light background is a nice example of the usual care of the artist for readability.
This image meets a dual logics. First : Franklin, subtle polemicist, renowned scientist, ambassador of freedom, alter ego of the "Poor Richard", has remained a popular figure. On the other hand, the Saturday Evening Post claimed to be the successor of the Pennsylvania Gazette founded by Franklin.
