He received his first commission at the age of fifteen, became art director of Boys Life at nine-teen, and started his career in earnest by contributing his first Saturday Evening Post cover when he was twenty-two. This was the first of 317 Saturday Evening Post covers, and it has been estimated that four million people saw each cover not to mention examples of his work with appeared in. Rockwell is regarded by many as one of the greatest 20th century artists, not only because of his brilliant craftsmanship, but because of his ability to interpret his fellow human beings to picture their strengths and their weaknesses from great triumphs to small vexations. Each of his paintings tells a real-life story, giving viewers an added degree of insight into the feelings and reactions of their fellows. He uses a wide variety of techniques and mediums oils, watercolors, chalk, charcoal whatever he feels will best interpret his subject. And Rockwell's choice of subject matter seems almost limitless. His superb creative ability appears at its height in his many interpretations of the Christmas theme. His delightful Christmas paintings for the Saturday Evening Post became an annual holiday tradition over 25-year period. The Christmas Plates, Rockwell's first work in sterling silver; have already become a valued holiday tradition.
