On this day, February 3, 1894, illustrator Norman Rockwell was born in New York City. Rockwell began his art studies while still in high school and eventually went to the Art Students League studying under Thomas Fogarty and George Bridgman. Rockwell became the art editor of Boy’s Life (the Boy Scout’s magazine) when he was 19. Soon he was creating magazine cover illustrations for The Literary Digest, Life, Country Gentleman, and The Saturday Evening Post. His career spanned more than 50 years.
