This piece was illustrated by Rockwell, Norman Perceval. Artist signature in print - bottom right of image.
(1894-1978) Norman Perceval Rockwell was born in New York City but he was best known and beloved for his nostalgic images of small town and rural America. He studied at the Chase School of Fine and Applied Art, the National Academy of Design, and the Art Students League and was influenced by the work of Howard Pyle and J. C. LeyendeckerÑtwo great illustrators of the period. He began his career with illustrations for the St. Nicholas magazine and other juvenile publications but he is most associated with The Saturday Evening Post for which he did more than 300 covers beginning in 1916. In addition to his magazine and advertising work he produced the famous Four Freedoms posters during WWII. His work captured the innocence of an America now long gone and with each drawing Rockwell told a story with considerable warmth and humor. With his prolific output and huge audience, Rockwell is perhaps the artist most responsible for raising the genre of illustration to the art form we consider it to be today.
