NORMAN ROCKWELL VISITS A FAMILY DOCTOR (VISITING THE FAMILY DOCTOR), 1947

About the Artwork

Saturday Evening Post Story Illustration April 12, 1947.

Between 1943 and 1948 the Post sent Rockwell on eight visits around the country to record the lives of representative Americans in a pictorial series. For Family Doctor, Rockwell recorded the life of his own hometown family physician, Dr. George Russell. He painstakingly reproduced Russell's office, hiring an architect to do drawings of the room since his cameraman couldn't shoot the whole width of the office within the small space An Arlington family posed with their baby as the patient but the dog, Bozo, was Dr. Russell's. Apparently some people questioned the ethics of permitting a dog in the office but Rockwell said, "nobody ever seemed the worse for it."
