Crotts 1 Hilary Crotts HIS 132-620 Document Review: Norman Rockwell’s Rosie the Riveter Norman Rockwell produced a body of over 4,000 works in his lifetime. His painting methods began with small sketches, an accumulation of props to set the scene before building up to the painting itself (Rosie-the-Riveter). In 1916 Rockwell would began his relationship with the Saturday Evening Post where many of his paintings adorned the front cover. He was a master storyteller via canvas and paint, and his works, capture the triumphs and foibles of the common man[ CITATION Nor \l 1033 ]. Because the Saturday Evening Post was so prevalent in the lives of Americans, Rockwell’s images reached a wide audience and carried great cultural influence (Palmoe). Probably one if his most influential paintings is the iconic Rosie the Riveter. She adorned the cover of the Saturday Evening Post on May 29th, 1943, and became the star of a campaign aimed at recruiting female workers for defense industries during World War II (Rosie the Riveter).
