1954 by Norman Rockwell


Breaking Home Ties was painted by Norman Rockwell as the cover for the September 25, 1954 edition of the Saturday Evening Post. This painting was purchased for $900 in 1960, by cartoonist Don Trachte Jr., and was hidden behind a false wall in his Vermont home. It was discovered in 2006 by Trachte's sons who sold it at auction for $15.4 million dollars.
