The original painting by Norman Rockwell appeared on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post on July 14th 1952.
Frederick Douglass was an American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer and statesman.
Rockwell and Douglass are joined together in this adaptation of Rockwell’s famous father son moment.
There are very subtle differences between the two - one dog versus three cats, different wall colour, and framed photo of a unidentified male with the American flag and a hanging plant versus a framed silhouette.
Rockwell will always be considered a timeless artist but this print just speaks a different message than Rockwell’s version in this time.
This print is framed and measures approximately 11”x9”.
