Colonel Sanders Print

Ref: 5855

SOLD

Norman Rockwell painted a portrait of Colonel Sanders in 1973-74. Around that time it was released as a limited edition print run of only 5,000, of which this is number 2971.

There's a fascinating thread online showing the many letters sent back and forth between Rockwell and a representative for Sanders regarding the commissioning of the original portrait. Interestingly, Rockwell refused to paint the Colonel unless he posed without his trademark black-rimmed glasses. The Colonel eventually relented and the rest became history. Rockwell's portrait is one of very few images showing Sanders without his famous specs. 

Dimensions: 21.75"x24.75"
