“Breaking home ties”

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

Breaking Home Ties was painted by Rockwell for the September 25, 1954 cover of The Saturday Evening Post. It depicts a boy from a ranch in New Mexico who is about to leave home for the first time. His youthful optimism is contrasted with the weather-beaten face and subdued demeanor of his rancher father as they sit on the running board of an old truck. The mournful eyes of the family collie as it rests its head on the boy’s lap, adds poignancy to Rockwell’s famous rite-of-passage narrative. It is one of Rockwell’s most popular and most often reproduced images and is considered by Rockwell experts to be one of his masterworks.
