Though best known for his painted magazine covers and illustrations for stories, books, and advertisements, Norman Rockwell was also a prolific and masterful draftsman who utilized drawing as an essential underpinning of his art. Whether rough or highly refined, Rockwell’s drawing process made it possible for him to envision every aspect of a final work before it was begun. In the painting and related “doodle,” the artist is surrounded by studies and a range of visual references, but this lively, empathetic self-portrait is misleading. Rockwell rarely began a painting at the oil-on-canvas stage. By the time a canvas was on his easel, he would have completed several stages of preparation, including the creation of sketches, photographic references, and at least one highly detailed tonal drawing to be traced onto canvas.
