Norman Rockwell was born in New York on 3rd February, 1894. Rockwell enjoyed drawing and decided he wanted to be an artist at an early age. He studied at Chase Art School, the National Academy of Design and the Arts Students League. While a student he began having his drawings published in Boys Life magazine. Rockwell's editor was so impressed by his work and made him art director of the magazine.
Rockwell's ambition was to produce a painting used on the front-cover of the Saturday Evening Post. In March 1916 he travelled to Philadelphia to see George Horace Lorimer, the editor of the magazine. When Lorimer saw his work he immediately accepted two covers and commissioned three more. This was the start of his long-term relationship with the magazine that was to last over 45 years.
