Our recent blog “Daddy, There’s a Pebble in My Shoe” paid tribute to the artist Norman Rockwell. We have argued that some of DPI’s images remind us of paintings done by Rockwell. His work has had a significant influence upon us which is occasionally reflected in our selection of images. The lead photo in this blog we call “The Knockout“; California (June 1938). It’s connection to Rockwell, we believe, is Rockwell’s “Strictly a Sharpshooter” which was used as the cover for the American Magazine in June 1941.
