I happened upon this old article from PetaPixel. I found it interesting so I thought I'd share it.

Norman Rockwell was surely a great painter / illustrator but — still
today — the story telling is following me since my teenager years.

We have several Norman Rockwell books, one of them has a chapter dedicated to the photos he used.  Most very close to the paintings.  He used local people as his models .
