  • Norman Rockwell an early adopter of Photoshop? The NY Post, previewing a new show in Brooklyn, writes:

    Often, he’d stage multiple photos for a given illustration — using as many as 100 photos for a single painting. In fact, Rockwell combined elements much like a photo editor uses Photoshop today.

    More than 100 pieces, mostly Saturday Evening Post covers from his 47-year career there, are displayed alongside photographs and study sketches detailing Rockwell’s process. In many images, you can actually spy the artist directing his models.

    The show opens November 19th at the Brooklyn Museum.
