What I like about Norman Rockwell's art is that it generally tells a story, without a word needing to be said. The above picture, 'Santa on Train' is a good example of this. It was the December 28, 1940 cover of the Saturday Evening Post, and there's genius in its simplicity. Here we have a department store Santa Claus napping on the train, under a Santa poster proclaiming, "See him at Drysdales". Peeking at him with popping eyes is a young boy. The packages he is carrying tie the unspoken narrative together: they are inscribed "Drysdales", and it is obvious that he has seen Santa more formally- and still bewhiskered- earlier in the day. This is what Rockwell truly excelled at: finding the humour and humanity in everyday people and situations, and expressing it in a single frame. Love this!
