Rockwell used 172 known photos for that August 30, 1952 Saturday Evening Post cover alone!
It would seem that painting thirty-two heads is far more work than one or two, but to Rockwell, whose forte was portraiture, telling a complete story using this method was far less work than a cover with a detailed background. The events of the girl’s day were so typical to the American child that this cover could be appreciated by large numbers of viewers.
