Your model is a reproduction of a painting done by Rockwell for the December 1967 edition of McCail's Magazine. This long and narrow 26' by 95 (67.5 cm X 242.5 cm) canvas, titled Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas, was painted to remind the nation of traditional values. With its charming houses and stores, Stockbridge seems to resist time and stays unchanging. To the right is the bank with its imposing pillars, the town hall that dates back to 1884, the William & Sons general store that opened its doors in 1795 and is one of the oldest businesses in New England. Standing next to it is the market and the antique dealer. Rockwell's first studio in Stockbridge was located upstairs from the market. where a Christmas tree can be seen through the window. The infinite beauty of this region and the joviality of its residents, were for this distinguished illustrator, a never-ending source of inspiration. Norman Rockwell passed away November 8th, 1978 in Stockbridge, where he spent the last 25 years of his life.
