"When Rockwell's view was reduced to a small neighborhood, as in The Homecoming the city resembles a small town with everyone engaged in a common enterprise, such as welcoming home a local hero But except for these reductions in scale, Rockwell defined the city more emphatically by contrast or withdrawal from it." Neil Harris, from Norman Rockwell: Pictures for the American People, 1999
Here, Rockwell includes his eldest son Jarvis as the boy in the red sweater among the Marine's admiring audience.
