Norman Rockwell Somebodys Up There Christmas 1979 Collector Plate - Item VCP#100
This Norman Rockwell Sombodys Up There Christmas 1979 collector plate is titled " Somebody's Up There." The little girl's face and wide, astonished eyes tell the story; the household is fast asleep and she and her even younger brother have crept downstairs in their nightclothes to see if Santa has arrived.
Norman Rockwell is one of the great story-telling artists of all time, and the warmly nostalgic moment he re-creates here affectionately depicts the simple joys of a long-gone past. The original "Somebody's Up There" painting was done in 1920 for the December 16 cover of the old Life magazine. The composition is balanced almost equally between warm and cool colors. Burnt sienna and umber, cadmium orange and yellow ochre define the children, smoldering logs and the rays of candlelight; ultramarine and violet throw the rest of the room into deep shadow and focus attention on the little girl's brilliantly lighted face
Because of the universal appeal, "Somebody's Up There" has been chosen by the Plate Selection Committee as the 1979 Rockwell Society Christmas issue.
