Norman Rockwell : Home for the Holidays : Saturday Evening Post Covers : Blog #33

Walking to Church, 1953

Walking to Church by Norman Rockwell

In 1953, Norman Rockwell had four Saturday Evening Post Covers. Walking to Church was his second, and appeared on the April 4th edition.

The original oil on canvas painting is owned is a private collection.

You know (or assume) the family is going to church due to their attire, they are caring bibles and you can see the church steeple in the background. The churches’ bell also appears to be ringing.

Many Rockwell enthusiasts like to point out the black cat that also make an appearance in the painting.

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!
