OPC Invited to a Special Viewing of “Norman Rockwell Visits a Country Editor”

 

OPC members are invited to a special viewing of Norman Rockwell’s famous work, Norman Rockwell Visits a Country Editor, at Christie’s on Tuesday, Nov. 17 before the piece goes up for auction. Other works in the auction will also be on display.
