Social realist painter Stevan Dohanos was probably referred to as “Rockwell inspired” more than a few times during his career, but that's partly due to the fact that he also had his artwork featured on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post.
But just because Dohanos didn't become a household name like Rockwell doesn't mean he's wasn't every bit as good as Rockwell, because he was a really good painter.
Of course, you're not trying to knock Dohanos and his paintings down, you hardly know the guy, right?
That's a crying shame, because his paintings perfectly capture scenes of modern cluttered madness, middle class disillusionment and old souls feeling a bit lost in the mid-century world.
Dohanos' paintings are like the cynical antidote to Rockwell's sugar pill, which makes them instantly more relatable and far more visually compelling.
