In 2009, through the generosity of the Rodger P. Nordblom family, Norman Rockwell Museum acquired two 1919 paintings Rockwell created for The Country Gentleman: Fishing Trip, They’ll Be Coming Back Next Week and The Catch. The paintings were part of a series of cover illustrations Rockwell created for the magazine between 1917 and 1920, following the antics of four fictional young boys: Master Reginald Claude Fitzhugh, Tubby Doolittle, Rusty Doolittle, and Chuck Peterskin. The two illustrations were published consecutively, in order to complete a narrative about the boys’ varying degrees of success during a fishing trip.
