Norman Rockwell

1894- 1978

American Artist

The ever-popular work of Norman Rockwell continues to represent the spirit of small-town America for millions of art lovers. This quintessential American painter and illustrator was best known for his covers on the Saturday Evening Post which appeared for an amazing 47 years, although his work also appeared in magazines as diverse as Boy's Life, LIFE, Look, and American Artist.

Rockwell himself considered the Saturday Evening Post to be "the greatest show window in America for an illustrator." Rockwell's work is known for the precision and accuracy with which he captured his subjects.
