Tell short stories inspired by Rockwell’s work.
This painting was done for “The Saturday Evening Post” and depicts a family before and after their summer vacation. Rockwell’s Post covers were intended to present a story that was easily “read” and understood by viewers. In this painting he uses two images within one picture to provide more detail and create a continuum of time. We see the “before” and the “after” of the imagined event, a family ‘s summer outing by the lake. The illustration is packed with clues to help viewers unravel the story line.
