Rockwell once said, "I unconsciously decided that, even if it wasn't an ideal world, it should be and so painted only the ideal aspects of it-pictures in which there are no drunken slatterns or self-centered mothers . Only foxy grandpas who played ball with the kids and boys who fished from logs and got up circuses in the backyard." “Catching the Big One” captures that sentiment.
“Catching the Big One” was sold by Sotheby’s Auction House in NY on Sept 26, 1990 for $148,500.
