From the publisher:
"A new, must-have book about American icon Norman Rockwell.
"The Norman Rockwell Museum has published a fully-illustrated volume about its art and archives - a notable and singular collection that forms the most comprehensive Rockwell holdings in the world.
"The lavishly illustrated 272-page catalogue was written by Rockwell scholar Linda Szekely Pero, the longtime curator of the Museum's Norman Rockwell Collections, and offers the reader an insightful and fascinating analysis of Rockwell's art, life and legendary career that spanned nearly seven decades-a legacy that continues to have a major impact on society, visual culture, and modern-day illustrators."
My friend Linda has written a great single-volume monograph showcasing the museum's collection of Rockwell paintings alongside a sampling of the archives' holdings of photos and documents.
Included is a 49-page chapter called "The Artist's Process" which follows the creation of a single image: an assignment for Look Magazine.
