FIGURE OF THE WEEK #41: HALLOW~E'EN by Andrea Miniatures

It's Halloween week so it is only fitting that our Figure of the Week is HALLOW~E'EN based on the classic Norman Rockwell cover for The Saturday Evening Post  from 1920. This figure was issued a couple of years ago as a 54mm figure kit by Andrea Miniatures and is part of their Wonderful World Series (WY-11). 

Beloved American artist Norman Rockwell (1894 – 1978) is most known for his nostalgic, touching paintings that appealingly depicted simple scenes from everyday life. First hired to illustrate a series of children’s books when he was 16, Rockwell was then hired as the art director of “Boys’ Life,” the official magazine of the Boy Scouts of America. The “Saturday Evening Post,” the era’s most prestigious magazine, bought their first cover from him six years later. For almost five decades, he created 321 “Post” covers, which became his trademark.
