I left my other book report up, but as I just recently went to a wonderful exhibition of Norman Rockwell’s work I checked out this book again which is in my studio and recommend it to my JPG friends.

This is the most awesome book, if you like Norman Rockwell. Normal Rockwell was technically an academic painter although he had the eye of a photographer and as he became a mature artist, he used this eye to give us a picture of America that was familiar and at the same time unique. No other artist sustained the popular success enjoyed by Norman Rockwell. Through his work Normal Rockwell held up a friendly mirror to the American society he lived in, and Americans have looked into this glass and seen themselves as warm, decent, hard-working citizens of a country bountiful enough to accommodate their boundless optimism.

Normal Rockwell helped preserve American myths, but, more than that, he recreated them and made them palatable for new generations.
