Norman Rockwell: The Dugout

Rockwell traveled to Boston with Saturday Evening Post art editor Ken Stuart to photograph fans during a doubleheader between the Boston Braves and the visiting Chicago Cubs at Braves Field. Additional images taken in the studio were used to fill out the jeering crowd. Rockwell himself can be found in the upper left corner of the painting. The artist typically used oil paints for his final work, but this is a rare example done in watercolor.
