Norman Rockwell, one of America's truly great artists, didn't live to see Valve's Portal released. Dying in 1978, he didn't come close. But let's imagine, just for a moment, that he had.

He just might have come up with something like this. Jesse Rubenfeld's painting, called This Was a Triumph, is based on Rockwell's famous "Rosie the Riveter" work from the Second World War, which at the time appeared on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post.

This one? It'll have to settle for the cover of Kotaku.
