Going and Coming

Norman Rockwell, 1947

Rockwell painted Going and Coming (above) for the August 30, 1947 edition of the Post. Its two parts tell the story of a family that appears excited and happy to go on a trip to the lake, but tired and a little grumpy on the way home. The grandma, however, looks unamused and unfazed in both directions. (For more about Elva Edgerton, the grandma’s model, see...)
