Norman Rockwell: The Man Behind the Canvas

Sep 24-Dec 31, 2016 Norman Rockwell’s work has been re-discovered by a new generation of Americans seeing the 100 Saturday Evening Post cover illustrations featured in this exhibition as more accurate pictures of the American experience compared to previous generations who lived during Rockwell’s time and viewed them as idealized or stylized representations of small town America in the mid-20th century. 100 photographs taken by his trusted friend and assistant, Louis Lamone, also present candid moments of Rockwell’s everyday experiences that help us to better understand his fascination with small towns and representations of an idealized American experience.


Norman Rockwell: The Man Behind the Canvas, originated from the LaGrange Art Museum, LaGrange GA.
