About the workThe seminal Rockwell artwork, "The Saturday People" is a rare piece of work with only 200 limited editions of the image being published and even fewer artist proofs, of which this work is. Created for the October 1966 edition of McCall's Magazine. The work was an original for the magazine completely inspired by the tale of a thirteen year old with golden hair called Leslie. She lived in mid- Manhattan and excited by her world there, her imagination activated. The flamboyant and famous figures dance within her own private thoughts. To further exemplify this Rockwell portraits over thirteen celebrities and socialites of the time are actually among the notables who move through Rockwell's image. From left to right are Actor David McCallum, NYC Mayor John Lindsay, Soprano Maria Callas, Actor Sean Connery, Pianist Van Cliburn, Beatles' drummer Ringo Starr, Prince Philip of England, New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller, Comedian Jonathan Winters, Composer/Conductor Leonard Bernstein and Actor Tallulah Bankhead. Other notables— including Rockwell himself, along with his wife Molly in cameo appearance— walk through the artwork from right to left.
