Norman Rockwell: Artists I Love 1
Norman Rockwell : Artist and Illustrator by Rockwell (1970, Hardcover)
The work of iconic American artist Norman Rockwell — hangs in countless museums and galleries worldwide, and is showcased in numerous art books published over the past decades. Abrams, who founded his eponymous art book publishing house in Abrams, in Lach, a former senior editor at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and currently v-p and editorial director of Abbeville Press, explained that the A Day in the Life… books were created in partnership with the Rockwell estate and the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Mass. Now in their 70s, the two were neighbors of the artist as children in Arlington, Vt. Her mother came along, and helped her hold each pose that Rockwell orchestrated while photographer Gene Pelham snapped the pictures.
Would Norman Rockwell have been as happy, or successful, if he had painted only to please himself instead of pursuing fame and fortune as an illustrator? The question hangs over Laura Claridge's engrossing if spongy biography of this artist for two reasons. Because it never ceased to haunt Rockwell, prompting crises of self-doubt, painting trips to Paris and even re-enrollment at the Art Students League, where he studied as a teenager. And because Rockwell, who kept abreast of modern art and admired both Pollock and Picasso, surely had the ambition, as well as the focus, sophistication and intelligence to be a great artist. All he seemed to lack was the courage and confidence to be unadored and uncompensated while waiting for success to strike. The question of whether Rockwell was an exorbitantly talented illustrator or a grossly underrated painter has been debated regularly since the early 's, when his Saturday Evening Post covers began to make him America's best-loved artist. It has been revived by the current Rockwell retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum.
