APRIL FOOL (CHECKERS), 1943

About the Artwork

Saturday Evening Post cover, Apr 03, 1943.

The first in a series of three April Fool's Day themed covers, this illustration is a visual puzzle of absurdities and deliberate mistakes. This scene is a classic example of Norman Rockwell's subtle wit and humor. Some curiosities are obvious enough, but others are well disguised and not apparent at first glance.
