Norman Rockwell : a sixty year retrospective. by Norman Rockwell( Book )

11 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For seven decades Norman Rockwell captured the essence of the American spirit, creating art for magazines (more than 300 Saturday Evening Post covers), children's books, calendars, and advertisements, heartwarming and poignant images that touch us still. Norman Rockwell traces the evolution of the artist and his craft through his paintings, sketches, and photographs of him at home. And, of course, there is the artwork itself; the diverse array of full-color reproductions here represent Americans at work, at play, at home, and fighting for the Four Freedoms during World War II
Norman Rockwell : artist and illustrator by Norman Rockwell( Book )

13 editions published in 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Normal Rockwell's subject is average America' ... These words from the text by Thomas S. Buechner, distinguished director of the Brooklyn Museum, explain Rockwell's enduring charm. And this volume, with is superb reproductions, including two, three, and even four-page spreads and foldouts in full color, finally does justice to an artist whose works have most often been seen only in the impermanent mediums of magazines and calendars. The author discusses Rockwell's life and career, from his early training, through the development of his mature style, to his recent interest in the major social issues of our time ... Thanks to his exhaustive study of Rockwell and his work, Buechner is able to draw a lively word-picture of an extraordinarily interesting personality -- who also happens to be a unique phenomenon in the history of art -- and places him in the great tradition of the story-telling artists of the past ... This rich collection provides an unparalleled panorama of nearly sixty years of American social history, seen from Rockwell's enormously popular point of view. A full index of the works by category helps to make the volume an invaluable addition to the history of American illustration."--Jacket

The Norman Rockwell treasury by Norman Rockwell( Book )

11 editions published between 1979 and 1993 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The very best of America's favorite American artist - at an unbeatable price. Norman Rockwell's works have always enchanted America with their clear-eyed and humorous picture of life in the country's heartland: here are the very best of them, from the Saturday Evening Post covers to The Four Freedoms, a series of paintings done during World War II. Every image still exudes its fresh charm, unsullied by sentimentality: Santa, napping as the elves scurry about him and finish Christmas preparations; Grandma placing a large Thanksgiving turkey on the table, surrounded by her smiling family; a mother, stepping out of a slightly run-down apartment building with arms joyfully outstretched to greet her son, newly returned from the war. From the deeply personal to the political - a black child being led to school by US Marshals in the early days of integration - every piece retains its fascination. Thomas S. Buechner, a distinguished former director of the Brooklyn Museum, examines Rockwell's style, technique, and development, placing him in perspective as an important force in 20th-century art
