Puppy Love

What better news story could there be for Valentine's Day than that Norman Rockwell's original painting for the beloved Puppy Love - also called Boy and Girl Gazing at Moon - has been donated to the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. The painting was created for the cover of the 24 April 1926 issue of The Saturday Evening Post. The donor is Bill Millis and family. On a tip from Rockwell, to whom he had written, Bill travelled to the Bernard Dannenberg Galleries in New York City in 1975 and was captivated by Puppy Love. It has hung in his home for the last 40 years. A generous donation (CLICK).
