Okay, so it ain't the Missing Carravaggio but it's still an interesting (and all-american) story.

As long as it wasn't one of his Saturday Evening Post Christmas covers (I read he grew to hate having to do the same Dickens theme every year, but it's what the readership demanded).

"a Norman Rockwell painting"

This can't be true. The 'arts & crossaint' crowd deemed Norman Rockwell an 'illustrator' years ago, therefore, it couldn't be a 'painting', but merely an 'illustration'. ~gag~

Nobody I know uses the word "fetched" any more - except when referring to the actions of a dog.

I like that word.

Rockwell's paintings are popular in the US.

The Beeb can't even do a straight story without working in a sneer? Yes, they're popular in the U.S. because they're damn good. IMHO.

Rockwell was the BEST.

But I thought Rockwell wasn't a real "arteest"?

Rockwell was a great artist. An illustrator perhaps, but a great master all the same. Nice thread.
