First published on the October 24 1959 cover of The Saturday Evening Post, Family Tree by Norman Rockwell was inspired by a 12th-century Dutch chart provided by a reference librarian at the nearby Berkshire Athenaeum. The consistency of family features through the generations is assured by Rockwell's use of the same model for either the man or the woman in each couple on the tree.
