Norman Rockwell painted an annual calendar cover for the Brown and Bigelow
company under contract for a bit more than 50 years, if my memory serves me
correctly. When he stepped down a few years before his death, a fellow named
Csatari took over, and has done some wonderful and innovative covers that
equal (at least in my "art-challenged" opinion) Norman Rockwell's best.
I don't remember seeing any Norman Rockwell paintings of Girl Scouts, but I
would be surprised indeed if he did none, given that there were millions of
girl Scouts in this country, then as now.
Good question!! Can anybody add anything to what little I know.
