Holiday Trappings

Norman Rockwell’s “Home for Christmas” (Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas) Print

Norman Rockwell’s painting, done for McCall’s December 1967, has come to symbolize Christmas in America. Rockwell takes you on a Christmas Eve walk along Stockbridge’s main street, past the public library, the antiques and gift shops, the old town office, Rockwell’s own studio and to the rambling Victorian hotel. McCall’s reached out to its national audience by adding, “Wherever you happen to hail from-city, suburb, farm or ranch-we hope you will have, for a moment, the feeling of coming home for Christmas.” The Museum is the only source where every purchase directly supports the legacy of Norman Rockwell. • $35-170
