Norman Rockwell presumably liked his fishing

I know a fondness for Norman Rockwell‘s work isn’t exactly a giveaway of cutting-edge radicalism but what can I say? There’s a vivid warmth to his art that I find as appealing as a winter fireside. Let the cynics have The Scream.

The figurine pictured is inspired by a Rockwell picture (and is on sale at eBay until Thursday). Just one of several works the great man devoted to The Quiet Sport. A selection of the others you’ll find here (search ‘Norman Rockwell, fishing’)

Not everything he did, admittedly, is quite so timeless.
