Doll Doctor Cross Stitch Chart

Well, here is another piece of artwork from Norman Rockwell and The Saturday Evening Post. This was the cover on March 9, 1929.

The Norman Rockwell Museum has this quote about this image. “The doctor who applies his stethoscope to a young girl’s doll is attempting to acknowledge her world of enchantment. The expression on his face is as serious and concerned as it might be if he were examining the girl herself. Such a willingness to place professional expertise at the feet of childhood magic serves to remind us, again, of things we have forgotten: secret kingdoms inhabited by imaginary beings whose needs seemed as real as those of the people around us. Rockwell’s physician may appear to take the doll’s health seriously as an effort to gain the child’s confidence and trust, but his act of sympathy is also one of grace, accepting his patient’s needs with serenity.” Neil Harris, from Norman Rockwell: Pictures for the American People, 1999.

The cross-stitch chart is interesting though because it was created with a white background, so I removed the outside. Therefore; you don’t need to stitch the outside pure white. I do recommend stitching on white fabric though and leaving some space for visible fabric when you frame.

This piece is 115 colors. It is 265×337 stitches.
