Norman Rockwell’s “The Critic” first appeared on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post in 1955.
Rockwell used his oldest son as the model for the studying art critic. He honored his mother by making her the portrait at which he’s looking carefully. Her red hair was added for fun by Rockwell.
You know what’s fun? Cotton candy, baseball games, ice cream bars. You know what’s not? Being a ginger in the summer.
