The Roanoker - March/April 2016 - NR9

an important collection of American art that was also
recognizable by art critics nationally. Those works
became the core of the Horace G. and Ann H. Fralin
Center for American Art at the museum.
A.M.: Why this Rockwell?
H.F.: We were looking for several artists that
worked during that timeframe, including Norman
Rockwell, and we engaged Debra Force, an American art specialist from New York who helped us find
works such as this Rockwell. Our mandate was to
find works of art by quality American painters that
had excellent aesthetic importance, impeccable
provenance (verified history of ownership), and were
in good condition. She had a knack for forecasting
when works such as Rockwell's "Framed" became
available on the market.
A.M.: Paint a picture of that day at Sotheby's auction.
H.F.: Members of the Museum staff, its Director Dr.

Serving Roanoke, New River Valley and Lexington

Judy Larsen, curator Suzannah Koerber, along with
American specialist Debra Force and I attended the
auction on December 4, 2002, at Sotheby's in New York.
We had a course of action for bidding that
day, and it was a full house. We were lucky. One
competitor, who was representing another museum,
was given instruction to own the work at any cost,
ended up getting caught in traffic and missed the
auction. The Art Museum of Western Virginia won
the bid, and we realized at that moment that Roanoke
and its museum were now the repository for one of
the most important works in American history. Over
the years, the Taubman Museum of Art has generously
shared Rockwell's Framed with other museums across
the country, including its presentation in the Brooklyn
Museum of Art's exhibition Behind the Camera where
it was a signature work.
A.M.: Thank you, Mr. Fralin.
H.F.: Thank you.
