Saying Grace by Norman Rockwell

Saying Grace

The little boy with dark, golden, short hair sat on an traditional back rest wooden chair and left his back of the head, praying. He was in white shirt with black pants and maybe at his tens. On his right side, there was his grandmother, who was in neat black dressing with a white scarf, was closing her eyes and thanking the God for the food devoutlty. And she had a hat with some sunflowers at the front. There are some luggages with a hat and black umbrella at the floor near to the grandmother. Meanwhile, two young men who sat in front of them listened and watched carefully. One of them had a cigarette with his two fingers and the other on mouth. They two also in suit. It seemed that the pray was hard to see in this place where people rushing and coming and going. Another two elder men in their position sitting or standing, stopped to listen and watch the praying. An old dark red curtain was tightening on the wall where next to it was a big widow that people could see outside scenery nearby. And some letters of restaurant were put on the glass. That was in a small shabby restaurant near the train station.

This picture, which was named Saying Grace, was one of the famous works of Norman Rockwell who was regarded as an universal illustrator in America in the early twenties. Last year, on December 4th an art auction was held at the Sotheby’s Auction House, where had six-eight works on auction. To our surprise, Saying Grace, one of Norman's three works, was bought by an anonymity at 46.085 million dollars which made Norman become an artist whose works were the most expensive in America.
