    American Illustrator - Original Illustration (probably 1945-1950). This painting, originally attributed to Douglass Crockwell, was most likely published as a story illustration. Douglass Crockwell was often compared (and confused) with his contemporary, Norman Rockwell. Like Rockwell, Douglass Crockwell painted wholesome images, usually children and sentimental subjects, which appeared in numerous national publications and several times on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. An extremely talented artist, Crockwell's images charmed and delighted. He was a major contributor to a long-running series of liquor ads entitled, "Beer Belongs," which allowed him to paint a succession of warm, nostalgic, family-oriented paintings that are still enjoyed today. We believe this painting is probably not by Crockwell, but nonetheless expertly rendered in oil on canvas board, which measures 20 x 30.
