Four Boys on a Sled
I have a painting on canvas of the Four Boys on A Sled on a stretched canvas. How many of these were made?
I bought the painting at a thrift store ran by a church. All proceeds of sales go to charity. I have it hanging on my bedroom wall. I think it's cute. Does it have any value?
It is a very cute painting and one of my favorite winter scenes painted by Rockwell. There is just such freedom and abandon on each of the boys' faces. Thee only concern is on the dog's face.
I do not know how many were printed. Several years back, Art.com stocked this as a print on stretched canvas. They no longer carry canvas prints. I am not sure if that is what you have or not.
As for your print's value, I'll give you my standard answer. That answer is always subjective.
If you are trying to sell it, the value is what someone else will pay you for it. Nothing more, nothing less.
If you love that item and would not part with it except under extraordinary circumstances, then it is virtually priceless.
That being said, I believe that Art.com was charging in the neighborhood of seventy dollars or so, depending on the size.
Enjoy your Norman Rockwell art and the feelings it evokes.
