Google is showing a logo for US painter Norman Rockwell. The link text is [norman rockwell], the results show many poster-affiliate sites, the top result being from nrm.org. Wikipedia writes:

<<Norman Percevel Rockwell (February 3, 1894 – November 8, 1978) was a 20th-century American painter and illustrator. His works enjoy a broad popular appeal in the United States, where Rockwell is most famous for the cover illustrations of everyday life scenarios he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine over more than four decades.>>
