An original work by famed illustrator Norman Rockwell will be offered among Amish-made food, quilts, and "awesome stuff" at a Pennsylvania charity auction this weekend.
A local donor gave the Rockwell painting, “Swords at Weehawken,” to the 32nd annual Hospice & Community Care's Labor Day Auction in Quarryville, Penn. to help raise funds. Bidding is on Monday and the oil-on-paperboard work bears an estimate of $75,000.
The work is captioned “Philip found himself involved in a humiliating contest with a small pig” and was originally published in November 1938 as an illustration for the story “Swords at Weehawken” by Leonard Falkner in American Magazine.
