In this 60-Second Gallery, explore ' Blacksmith’s Boy – Heel and Toe’, Norman Rockwell's depiction of an intense horseshoe-making contest in which a seasoned blacksmith competes against a much younger rival. To create this complex work, Rockwell photographed each of the 23 individuals depicted and directed his models to expressively communicate the excitement they would feel if actually a witness to this event. 'Blacksmith’s Boy – Heel and Toe', sold to benefit the Berkshire Museum, will be offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s American Art Auction on 23 May in New York.
