NEW YORK (AP) - A painting by Norman Rockwell that depicts the undecided voter sentiment during the 1944 presidential election - much like the 2016 race - will be the highlight of an auction of American art in New York.

“Which One? (Undecided; Man in Voting Booth)” shows a man standing in a voting booth clutching a newspaper while pondering the choice between Democratic President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Republican Thomas E. Dewey.

The painting comes from the estate of horse racing executive Ogden Mills Phipps, who acquired it in 1985. Sotheby’s will offer it on Nov. 21 with a pre-sale estimate of $4 million to $6 million.

Rockwell is best known for his covers of The Saturday Evening Post that capture the spirit and popular culture of everyday American life.
