About the Artwork

Norman Rockwell illustrates the yearly ritual of filing income taxes in this humorous Saturday Evening Post cover from 1945. Similar to his Artist Facing Blank Canvas (The Deadline), the main character in this painting is sitting with his back facing the viewer as he struggles to meet the impending deadline. Rockwell, known for his fastidious nature, has once again placed his subject in rather untidy surroundings, helping to emphasize the frenzied tone of the picture.
