In December 2013, Norman Rockwell’s iconic Saying Grace sold for a record $46 million at Sotheby's. At the time, the buyer of the big-ticket item was not disclosed, but it has recently been revealed that filmmaker George Lucas was the purchaser. Lucas, an avid collector, hopes to exhibit the work in his forthcoming Museum of Narrative Art. The Star Wars creator is currently looking for a site for the institution—a task that has proved more difficult than expected.
