One of this country's revered paintings depicts Thanksgiving...a magazine illustration by Norman Rockwell. The popular 1950's painter also created advertising art for the Parker Pen company here in Janesville. Earlier this year, the Parker family sold the illustrations for small fortunes at Sothebys.

Sothebys has created a wonderful video of Rockwell that you can see here along with one I made about Janesville's connection to him.
