* The Norman Rockwell Museum has asked me to help spread the word about what sounds like a terrific lecture they presented last Sunday. “Imperiled Illustrators: J.C. Leyendecker, Norman Rockwell, and the War at ‘The Saturday Evening Post’,” on Sunday, April 10 - More info on future lectures at the link.

    fun sampling of American types. that sun, seen thru the smoke of the burning ship, is a nice touch.

    I've always loved this piece by Rockwell. Notice that the dad at top has the same features as his ancestors throughout the painting. Love that. And I find it fascinating that the mom & dad are very distantly related.

    I worked at Curtis Publishing for several years and got to see some of the original SEP cover art up close... that of Rockwell & Leyendecker in particular. Pretty amazing, and I learned quite a bit.

    One of my fave Rockwell pieces. I saw the exhibition in DC of Lucas and Spielberg's collection and was surprised at how large a format he worked. The size of the canvases made them absolutely breathtaking in their details..

    ...this is NOT the work of an illustrator...this is art...
