The present work will be included as an addendum work in the Project Norman database created by the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
The present work is a study for Norman Rockwell's painting Adirondack Winter (1968), published as a sporting goods advertisement for ATO, Inc. Laurie Norton Moffatt writes "Five full-color oils were commissioned by ATO around 1970. Each advertised a product manufactured by ATO's subsidiary companies, including sporting goods products, fire protection equipment, and construction equipment."
