Norman Rockwell
Girl at Mirror, 1954, oil on canvas, 31 1/2 x 29 1/2 in., The Norman Rockwell Museum at Stockbridge (Massachusetts).
Girl at Mirror portrays a little girl, seated in front of a mirror, peering at herself  while a magazine photograph of a great beauty (Jane Russell) lies in her lap. The  initial feeling of nostalgia in the painting also brings to the modern  viewer’s mind the issue of media as it relates to body image.
