Norman Rockwell's work was unique. And humbling. For those of us who can't draw, at all, just imagine the genius and patience it must have taken to create his paintings. He also has a special place in our hearts because from 1939-53 he was a neighbour and friend of Dorothy Canfield Fisher's in Arlington, Vermont. Well of course they would have been friends! Although in fact we did not know that when we put one of his paintings on the Classic edition of The Home-Maker. This is a Vermont-era Rockwell called 'Victory in Defeat', she might be the sister of the boy on the front of The Home-Maker.
