Saturday Evening Post cover, May 19, 1956.
Within Rockwell's studio overlooking Main Street, Stockbridge, he created the set of an optician's office. With memories he felt as a boy getting a new pair of glasses, he posed models in the opposing forces of eager doctor and recalcitrant patient. He used the diagonal lines of his subjects' arms and legs to create movement within the uncluttered composition of furniture. The diagonal line is repeated in the patient's and doctor's downward and upward turned mouths.
