Norman Rockwell (February 3, 1894 - November 8, 1978) was an early 20th century American painter and illustrator. He is best known for the cover illustrations he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine over more than four decades.
Among the best-known of Rockwell's works are the Willie Gillis series, Rosie the Riveter (although his Rosie was reproduced less than others of the day), Saying Grace (1951), and the Four Freedoms series. He is also noted for his work for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA); producing covers for their publication Boys' Life, calendars, and other illustrations.
Spanking art by Norman Rockwell
The following paintings by Rockwell show boy spanking art:
- Advertising painting for "Interwoven Socks" showing a father spanking his son with a shoe in an underarm position, legs wide apart (M/m, 1927?). (Image)
- Cover for The Saturday Evening Post, November 25, 1933: A mother, seated on a chair with a little boy laid over her knee, about to spank him with a hairbrush for breaking a vase, a mirror and an alarm clock with a hammer. The mother is reading a book on psychology (F/m). (Image)
- Book illustration for "Huckleberry Finn", Heritage Press: Tom Sawyer switched by a teacher in a standing position in front of his classmates for talking to Huck Finn (M/m, 1943). (see right)
The humor magazine National Lampoon did an ironic spanking parody for the cover of their September 1975 "Back to College" issue inspired by Rockwell's illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post. Imitating his meticulous style, the Lampoon cover shows a professor giving a shapely college girl a bare-bottom spanking with a slide-ruler. The deliberate erotic and fetishistic overtones are calculated to create a jarring impact (see photo).
Spanking Tails 2 is a spanking magazine that also copies Rockwell's painting style and format used for The Saturday Evening Post. Here, a teacher paints a target on the backside of a female student who is bent over for a paddling. (see illustration)
