The Art of Norman Rockwell
Presented by Ron Roth.
As the premiere illustrator for the Saturday Evening Post for nearly half a century, no other American artist was more popular with the public than Norman Rockwell. Americans saw in Rockwell’s art a reflection of their values, their strengths and their foibles. Despite his easy-going, pipe-smoking facade, he was a lonely man who suffered from depression. This presentation explores the life and art of America’s unofficial “Artist-in-Chief,” and the unique and lasting contribution he made to American life.
