      A guest named Randy, from Springfield, Oregon, brought in this painting by Norman Rockwell, titled "The Little Model," which he told appraiser Nan Chisholm had been in his family for over 90 years, since Rockwell gave it to Randy's great-grandmother, who was Rockwell's aunt. Chisholm put a hefty current value of $500,000 on the painting. What follows are all four illustrations that Rockwell created for Collier's magazine covers in 1919.
