This title depicts a boy trying on an elegant suit in an old crowded attic. He is admiring his dapper reflection as his canine companion looks at him quizzically. Norman Rockwell loved to add dogs to his paintings. He once said, "If a picture wasn't going very well I'd put a puppy dog in it, always a mongrel, you know, never one of the full bred puppies." This title illustrates an iconic childhood moment when a boy suddenly wants to look like a gentleman.
