The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

STOCK­BRIDGE, Mass. — A Nor­man Rock­well paint­ing at the cen­ter of a con­tentious le­gal dis­pute over a Mas­sachusetts mu­seum’s de­ci­sion to sell it soon will be avail­able for pub­lic view­ing again.

The Nor­man Rock­well Mu­seum in Stock­bridge, Mass., an­nounced Wed­nes­day that “Shuf­fle­ton’s Bar­ber­shop” will go on dis­play there begin­ning June 9.

The paint­ing was one of two Rock­well works the Berk­shire Mu­seum in nearby Pitts­field said it needed to sell to stay afloat.

The sale was chal­lenged in court, and in a deal reached with the help of the state at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice, it was sold to the Lu­cas Mu­seum of Nar­ra­tive Art in Los An­ge­les for an undis­closed price.

The deal en­sured that “Shuf­fle­ton’s Bar­ber­shop” will re­main on dis­play in Stock­bridge un­til 2020.

The work was ex­pected to get as much as $30 mil­lion at auc­tion.
