The start of something

On 20 May 1916, the Saturday Evening Post first featured on the cover the work of Norman Rockwell.  It must have worked -- they kept buying his cover art for forty years or so. 

People who love to hate Norman Rockwell have a problem with his representational art.  They wish he were deconstructing the expectations of the viewer, or some such art-jargon.  But dude, that's what he is  doing.
