About the Artwork

Saturday Evening Post cover February 19, 1927.

To celebrate the February 12 birthday of President Abraham Lincoln, Norman Rockwell painted this picture of a store clerk reading law books. While it alludes to Lincoln's own study of law, the chronology is slightly mistaken. Though Lincoln had been a store clerk and then part-owner of a store, it wasn't until two years later, after he had started a political career as a representative in the Illinois General Assembly that he began to study law.
