Shadow Artist, The Country Gentleman, February 7, 1920, oil on canvas
Shadow Artist is reminiscent of the pantomime shows that appeared in vaudeville programs during Rockwell's youth. The scene is presented from the point of view of the children who watch the shadow maker in awe. George Lucas noted, "Just by the tilt of the heads, just by their body language, you can tell they are completely fascinated by what they're watching, and you can see the pride . . . on the part of the shadow maker."
