NORMAN ROCKWELL (1894-1978) captured scenes from American life in his magazine covers and illustrations, often noted for their humorous and accurate depictions of 1940's and 1950's life. Rockwell's drawings, however, were skillfully executed with minute attention to detail and were so realistic that they usually resembled photographs rather than paintings. He painted over 300 covers for the The Saturday Evening Post (1916-1965) after beginning his career at age 18 as an illustrator for Boy's Life. In addition to his many works for the Post, Rockwell illustrated the "Boy Scout Calendar" from 1926-1976. Rockwell published his autobiography, Norman Rockwell, My Adventures as an Illustrator, in 1960. Book jacket worn around edges and spine. Minor tears and discoloration around edges. Edges of pages lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition. Framed, not in the Gallery of History style. Two Items.
