Norman Rockwell was raised in New York City, but loved painting the more simple life of the country. He created a city slicker, Cousin Reginald, who visited his country cousins and proceeded to show what a city boy he was. In the 19-teens, on Country Gentleman magazine covers (a sister publication to the Post), Reginald entertained true farm boys across the nation. We think he’ll entertain you, too.
In this installment, Norman Rockwell gives a peek into early twentieth century teen angst!
Here we find four of the main characters in the series in a scene most of us are familiar with. Some of us, too familiar.
Cousin Reginald Claude Fitzhugh, farthest away in the picture, is holding a spurned peppermint stick in his hand. On his face is a look of disgust and utter amazement. Reginald has been cut out.
Next is the pretty little girl who Reginald is obviously sweet on. She is gazing admiringly at the cutter.
The cutter is Reginald’s country Cousin Rusty. Rusty has put down his school books and is standing on his head, one of his many talents. Rusty has won the affections of the pretty little girl away from his rival and cousin.
