Norman Rockwell Museum, April Fool

April 1

Find the April Fooleries!

Norman Rockwell’s April Fools illustrations were a popular tradition on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. Rockwell created three successful (and hilarious) paintings for the series, which kept Post readers busy searching for the artist’s intentional mistakes (the answers were printed in the following week’s edition).

Can you spot all 51 “mistakes” in Rockwell’s March 31, 1945 cover?
