About the workNorman Rockwell's Barbershop Quartet appeared on the September 26, 1936, cover of the Saturday Evening Post. This important study for the painting embodies the joyful spirit that Rockwell so masterfully captured in the final composition. It presents a rare and intriguing glimpse into the working process of one of art history’s most celebrated artists. It includes quintessential details such as the copy of the Police Gazette newspaper, with a scantily clad girl on the front cover, scuffed shoes, straight razor and comb missing a couple of teeth. Full of character and joy for life, Rockwell's Barbershop Quartet remains among his most iconic scenes of American nostalgia. The mural produced from this drawing now hangs outside the Barbershop Harmony Society in Nashville Tennessee, a group dedicated to preserving the history and art of the old-fashioned singing style. This work is pictured in Norman Rockwell: A Definitive Catalogue, vol. 1, 1986, by L. Norton Moffatt, no. C357a, pp. 134-135. Circa 1936
