Top: Norman Rockwell, Boy Graduate, oil on canvas, 74.5 x 36”, 1959.
Bottom: JC Leyendecker, June Graduate, oil on canvas, 24.5 x 20”, 1920.
Love how clearly the very different attitudes of the two artists come through when you have almost exactly the same subject (and even model!) depicted.
I could not, off the top of my head and with a very cursory internet search, find an exact analogue for the textless crest in the Leyendecker. It seems awfully familiar though, doesn’t it? I wonder if it’s something obvious that I’m missing, or if he just made it up.
Love the contrasting styles here.
