Yes I have done a lesson on Norman Rockwell from k-8th. He did not
only pose (compose)his pictures using live models but also took the
pictures and painted from them. This is why his pictures do have
that quality. Some of his models are still around, the children.
Sometimes he would have to repose and take new pictures if he wasn't
satisfied with the composition of the painting. He was humorous-
just look at the Dentist, lost tooth, or other humorous childlike
scenes. He was also the illustrator for not only "The Saturday
evening post", but also "Boys Life"!
