NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Norman Rockwell is known for his iconic paintings of everyday American life, but what you might not know is how carefully he created those scenes. CBS 2’s Dana Tyler reports.
STOCKBRIDGE, MA - APRIL 07: Steve Gershoff, a museum guide, speaks to visitors next to the copy of Norman Rockwell's painting titled "Breaking Home Ties," which has been hanging on display in the Norman Rockwell Museum on April 7, 2006 in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. The painting that has been hanging in the museum was apparently forged by Donald Trachte Sr. in the 1970s and the original was found behind a fake wall in his home by his eldest son, Donald Trachte Jr. last month. The original now hangs on display with the forged copy. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)Norman Rockwell painting (Credit: Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
