Norman Rockwell's America

  • overview

    Norman Rockwell’s heart-warming depictions of everyday life made him the best-known and most beloved American artist of the 20th century. He lived and worked through one of the most eventful periods in the nation’s history and his paintings vividly chronicled those times. His images often served as a mirror of American life, reflecting not who we really were, so much as what we thought and felt – and what we endeavored to become.

    Norman Rockwell's America exhibits a remarkable collection of 22 oil paintings, 7 drawings, original posters, and all 323 vintage Saturday Evening Post magazine covers spanning six decades, allowing for a comprehensive look at his distinguished career.

    Organized by The National Museum of American Illustration in Newport, RI.
