About the Artwork

Taking a break from his traditional Santa Claus illustrations, Norman Rockwell paid tribute to The Saturday Evening Post itself for the magazine's 1941 Christmas cover. Rockwell creates an inviting atmosphere in the illustration, which depicts a woman sitting in a cozy-looking newsstand while outside the winter snow drifts begin to form. A casual viewer might miss the fact that the periodicals lining the outside of her workstation carry a cover identical to the actual scene taking place a perfect example of Rockwell's often subtle use of humor in his storytelling.
