Today is great American artist, Norman Rockwell’s birthday. To honor him, the search engine, Google, replaced its regular logo with one of Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post covers as their “Google Doodle” on its homepage. For more than four decades, Rockwell painted small-town scenes and idyllic portraits for the covers of the Saturday Evening Post. “Little Spooners,” which is the cover Google used, was printed on April 24, 1926, and was among his most popular.
