Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Norman Rockwells hundreds of memorable covers for The Saturday Evening Post made him a twentieth-century American icon. However, because of the very popularity of his idealized depictions of middle-class life, his more serious paintings have been largely ignored, and he has often been deemed a mere illustrator, not a “real” artist.

In this, the first comprehensive biography of Americas most popular artist, Laura Claridge breaks new ground with her appreciative but clear-eyed view of Rockwells work—and his life. Based upon previously unpublished family archives and hundreds of interviews, this account reveals for the first time the deep disparity between the artists public image and his private life.

About the Author

A popular international lecturer, she was professor of English literature at the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, for eleven years. She lives in New York City.
