Description: Family saying grace
Comment: I’ll venture to say that probably everyone who reads this is familiar with the Norman Rockwell painting “Saying Grace” that set a record for an American painting in 2013. Beyond the fact that both the Rockwell and the Sundblom are true masterworks, one thing that links them is their depiction of faith and ultimately optimism in a world that’s far from perfect. It’s Sundblom’s mastery of applying those buttery strokes that made him (and keeps his) so highly revered. Truly a tour-de-force for what would have been a very important commission. Swift’s Premium would have put a lot of stock in the painting, making the image available for purchase in printed form.
