The National Press Club and its affiliated journalism institute will sell a Norman Rockwell painting the artist gave them more than 50 years ago and bank the estimated $10- to $15-million windfall to support future programs.


The painting — “Norman Rockwell Visits a Country Editor” – was completed for the Saturday Evening Post in 1946. Part of a Rockwell series featuring his visits to everyday places across the nation, including a school and a doctor’s office, it depicts Monroe County Appeal editor Jack Blanton in his newsroom in Paris, Mo.
