Back in 1971 when The Franklin Mint was raking it in big time, they approached illustrator Norman Rockwell to commission a painting exclusively for Franklin Mint members. Titled "The Collector," the original painting depicted a stately senior-aged numismatist (in a smoking jacket with white gloves) in his library, going over his collection with a presumed family member. Nearby props include a faithful dog, pipe, and books (but no familiar Red Book!). Copies were sold to Franklin Mint members and can still be found on the secondary market (I purchased mine for under $20. It's framed and waiting to get hung in my man cave). It's a nice piece of art to go with the room you devote the better part of your collecting to, and face it, there isn't many pieces of numismatic art you can hang on your wall. (On the other hand, you can easily fit a beautiful Saint Gaudens in your pocket.) In 2014 Christies auctioned off the original painting for $965,000. Even more interesting was an early study of the painting done with the collector studying his coins alone. I can't make out any of the coins or titles of the books in my copy, but the old man oddly resembles Frank Lloyd Wright.
