Catholic Boy Covers - Page 2 

Charles Kerins has been called "The artist who painted America's Childhood". In a larger sense, Kerins, more than any other artist, chronicled mid 20th century America from a young person's perspective.

  All of these images are from the magazine covers, so they don't have the quality and detail that phographing the original artwork would have.
