Norman Rockwell
(1894 – 1978)

Illustrator, born in New York City. He studied at the Chase School of Art, thenockwell National Academy of Design (1909), and the Art Students League (1910).

Using oils, he developed a realistic technique, idealizing small-town America. He became an illustrator for major periodicals, such as St. Nicholas, Collier's, Life, Judge, Look, and most notably, The Saturday Evening Post.

He produced calendars for Brown & Bigelow (1924-76), advertisements, and illustrated such classics as Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

For a number of years he made his home in Arlington, where many of the settings used in his illustrations can be found, as well as some of the local folk who were his models.
