This Spirit of the Tri-States brought to you by Continental Cement and Green American shows you how a Tri-State-inspired Norman Rockwell painting now has a new home.
Here's a look at a painting titled, "Norman Rockwell visits a country editor."
Today, Christie's Auction House in New York City auctioned the painting.
It sold for $11,589,000.
