Norman Rockwell: The Rookie (The Red Sox Locker Room)
UNITED STATES
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS  •  Museum of Fine Arts, Boston  •  29 April - 4 May 2014
 
After a third World Series Championship in a decade, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), celebrates the legendary Red Sox with a special loan of the beloved Norman Rockwell painting, The Rookie (The Red Sox Locker Room) (1957). Before being offered at auction at Christie’s (New York) on 22 May 2014, the MFA has the opportunity to display the work of art for six days only. The MFA is the only place where the public will be able to see the celebrated painting in Boston—which depicts the Red Sox locker room in 1957 during spring training in Sarasota, Florida—before it goes on the auction block. Rockwell’s classic work, portraying a group of seasoned veterans giving the once-over to the team’s newest player, will be on view in the MFA’s Sharf Visitor Center. The painting was also on display at the MFA in 2005 and 2008, following World Series wins.
