American artist and illustrator best known for his realistic and humorous scenes of small
town life in America. He painted over 300 covers for the Saturday Evening Post from
1916 to 1965 after beginning his career at age 18 as an illustrator for Boy's Life. His art,
drawn with attention to detail, had an air of simplicity and sentimentality. Rockwell's popularity
grew because his art seemed to be, for everyday Americans, a mirror-image of real life. His
subjects ranged from American presidents to Mark Twain characters to the man who delivered
his mail. Rockwell's work was also published in several other magazines and on numerous
calendars, and his paintings portraying "The Four Freedoms" were distributed as
morale-builders and to promote the sale of Victory Bonds during World War II.
Rockwell published his autobiography, Norman Rockwell, My Adventures as an Illustrator, in
1960. Previously authenticated by PSA/DNA.
