About the Artwork

Saturday Evening Post cover, Sep 16, 1944.

Norman Rockwell's tenth Willie Gillis cover for the Saturday Evening Post. Rockwell relied on his library of reference photos to create six generations of the Willie Gillis family. His model Bob Buck had enlisted as a Navy aviator and been sent to the Pacific. Rockwell said he got hundreds of letters from Gillises and others, some wanting to know where they could purchase the books shown in the picture - which were all imaginary.
