Norman Rockwell After the Prom - Reference photo 1957.
This reference photo for Norman Rockwell’s “After the Prom” not only shows how realistic his paintings are (for a minute you thought this was the painting didn’t you), but it’s also an illustration of Rockwell’s keen eye for detail. Even though Rockwell is obviously supremely talented, his wok wasn’t considered to be “artistic” during his lifetime, with many of his contemporaries labeling him an illustrator more than a serious artist.
That being said, it’s clear that even though Rockwell was interested in showing the simplicity of small town of American life, he was also seriously dedicated to making his work look as real as possible - something that wouldn’t only be appreciated after his death.
