Norman Rockwell Girl Missing Tooth (the Checkup)

This oil on canvas painting was done by Norman Rockwell in 1957 for the Saturday Evening Post. His painting was done using real children as models, depicting a scene in which a little girl lost her tooth, and her friends look to see the result. His paintings vary in severity and seriousness in each, but the ones he does with children are usually light and humorous. I love this painting because I an remember being in all three of those girls' shoes when I was little and my friends and I were looking teeth. I also love the look of excitement on the girl's face.  MoMA.
