Tired Salesgirl on Christmas Eve, 1947

Tired Salesgirl on Christmas Eve by Norman Rockwell 1947

The alternative title to this piece is “Christmas Rush”

Tired Salesgirls on Christmas Eve appeared on the December 27th, 1947 cover of the Saturday Evening Post. She was Norman’s 7th of out seven covers in 1947.

A private collector owns the original 30 1/4 inch by 28 inch oil on canvas.

If you look very carefully, her pin contains a watch which reads “5:05” – I’m sure she is happy 5 o’clock has finally arrived!

Norman Rockwell’s Home for the Holidays Traveling Exhibit, prepared by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, has been extended until January 24th. Make sure you stop by the Fick Fossil and History Museum before it’s gone for good!
