Saturday Evening Post cover August 30, 1947.
The use of a split canvas to portray a family car on vacation, is an effective device that invites comparison of the two scenes. In most cases it derives from a comic strip's use of a series of "frames" to tell a story. In this case, however, artist Don Spaulding, who studied with Rockwell in 1950 and spent several months living in the schoolhouse on the West Arlington Green, cites George W. Wright's painting of Going to and Returning from the Seashore as the inspiration for Going and Coming.
