Norman Rockwell (1894–1978), probably the best-known illustrator of twentieth-century American life, painted illustrations and was art director for Boy’s Life, the Boy Scouts of America magazine, while still in his teens. In 1916 he painted the first of 321 covers he produced for Saturday Evening Post over the next 47 years. These covers showed ordinary Americans of all ages at work and play.
