American artist and illustrator Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) is best known for his realistic and humorous scenes of small town life in America. He painted over 300 covers for the "Saturday Evening Post" from 1916 to 1965 after beginning his career at age 18 as an illustrator for "Boy's Life". His art, drawn with attention to detail, had an air of simplicity and sentimentality. Rockwell's popularity grew because his art seemed to be, for everyday Americans, a mirror-image of real life. His subjects ranged from American presidents to Mark Twain characters to the man who delivered his mail. Rockwell's work was also published in several other magazines and on numerous calendars, and his paintings portraying "The Four Freedoms" were distributed as morale-builders and to promote the sale of Victory Bonds during WWII. Rockwell published his autobiography, Norman Rockwell, My Adventures as an Illustrator, in 1960. Lightly toned. Two tears at the top of the page. Five horizontal folds on page. Carbon copy marks at top of page. Staple holes in upper left corner. Otherwise in fine condition.
