    One of the Franklin Mint Christmas Plates was heralded with this fitting observation: "Norman Rockwell, one of the most famous artists of our time, has just created his first Christmas Plate. He is regarded by many knowledgeable critics as the finest American artist since Remington. Thomas Buechner, director of the Brooklyn Museum has said, 'When this last half-century is explored by the future, a few works will continue to communicate with the same immediacy and veracity they have today. I believe Mr. Rockwell's will be among them.'"

    Provenance:
    Collection of Mr. Donald Walton
