The Art of Norman RockwellRegarded as America's most popular painter during his life, Norman Rockwell has endured in the memories of people who enjoyed the covers he painted for The Saturday Evening Post for nearly sixty years. This program takes a look at the development of Rockwell's career from his earliest days at The Post to the years after he left The Post and began illustrating for Look and Life magazines.Art historian Jeff Mishur presents this program. "The appeal of Norman Rockwell is vast to say the least," states Mishur. "However, his appeal in the present day is based almost entirely on commercially produced reproductions of his work on everything from posters to coffee mugs. For this reason, a closer look at his achievements will serve to provide a better understanding of his importance in American history."
