Dad’s Rockwell is a Fake?

08/23/2022 @ 5:30 pm

Don Trachte tells the story of Rockwell’s Breaking Home Ties, a painting owned by his father, a cartoonist with The Saturday Evening Post. One of Rockwell’s most iconic and beloved images, Breaking Home Ties was exhibited in museums around the world…until a secret room in the Trachte house was discovered, with the real painting inside. This is a story the best fiction writers couldn’t have invented!

Admission $10, free for MMoA members
