Norman Rockwell in World War II: Home Front

Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) was an American artist, best known for his popular paintings of American life that appeared in the pages of the Saturday Evening Post.

In May 1943, the cover of the Saturday Evening Post featured artist Norman Rockwell's painting of a muscular "Rosie" clad in a blue workshirt and denim coveralls, a riveter in her lap and a welder's face mask atop her head. The image remains to this day one of the most familiar representations of women war workers commonly referred to as "Rosie the Riveters."
