    Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) was a famous American painter and illustrator. He was best known for his depictions of American culture, especially figures like Willie Gillis and Rosie the Riveter, as seen on the covers of The Saturday Evening Post. He produced over 4,000 original pieces throughout his life, covering pop culture, political figures, traditional American life, and later on more serious topics like racial integration with the painting The Problem We All Live With.
