detail from Norman Rockwell Blacksmith (1940 for Saturday Evening Post)
From Berkshire Museum Board of Trustees President Elizabeth “Buzz” McGraw:
“We believe we acted consistent with our responsibility to this community and our collections, to keep this museum open now and strengthen it for generations to come. We are grateful the Judge recognized the care and diligence the Board exercised in arriving at this decision, and that today’s decision will ensure we can move forward.”

I have been following this story and am a little surprised at this outcome. I was hoping that the expectation of Norman Rockwell, that the museum keep his artwork safe and on display would have been honored. I hope whoever buys these paintings keeps them safe.
