Original Norman Rockwell signed print, titled Before and After, featuring his unique take on American politics. The image, which was featured on the cover of the November 8, 1958, issue of the Saturday Evening Post, comically juxtaposes a candidate's smiling likeness on his campaign poster with his nonplussed countenance following the results of his landslide election loss.

This is one of fifteen signed Rockwell prints that was included in Norman Rockwell/A Suite of Fifteen Color Prints of Saturday Evening Post Covers, published by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., in 1972. The print (19 x 25 inches) is in apparent Near Mint condition and has been matted and framed in such a way as to cover most of the blank bottom border, with the exception of the descriptive text. Total dimensions: 27 x 29 inches. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $948.00
