Biography | show moreshow less
Noted American artist/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" (1916-1965) after beginning his career at age 18 as an illustrator for "Boy's Life". Rockwell also painted politically significant works, such as his cover illustration of Franklin D. Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms" (1943) and of Presidential candidates. Scenic Stockbridge in the Berkshire Hills, a favorite vacation destination for Bostonians and New Yorkers, was Rockwell's home from 1953 until his death, and it is the site of the Norman Rockwell Museum. The combination of Norman Rockwell and Benjamin Franklin is an inspired one. Franklin (1706-1790), called by one recent biographer "the first American", was a printer, inventor, author and statesman of the highest caliber. His Poor Richard's Almanack, published from 1732 to 1758, combined all the weather information and practical hints expected of any almanac, with the many aphorisms still remembered and quoted today.
