Norman Rockwell is among the most revered painters of the 20th century. His figurative and portrait paintings reflect an innocent and idyllic America described by the artist as "life as I would like it to be." For nearly 50 years, he illustrated the covers of The Saturday Evening Post in a rich and emotive style that gave distinctive personalities to his imagined characters. In total, Norman Rockwell created more than 4,000 works of art over the course of his life.
Rockwell was born in 1894 in New York City. His artistic aspirations took shape early on, and when he was 14 years old, he took classes at the New York School of the Art, which is now the Parsons School of Design. Later, he attended the Art Students League of New York, where he studied under influential painters Thomas Fogarty and George Bridgman. While still a teen, Rockwell became art director of the Boy Scouts of America publication Boys' Life.
At 21, Rockwell moved to New Rochelle, New York, and opened a studio with fellow illustrator Victor Clyde Forsythe. He created illustrations for magazines like Literary Digest and Life before his first cover for The Saturday Evening Post was published when he was 22. In 1939, after moving to Arlington, Vermont, Rockwell pivoted to making the nostalgic paintings of small-town and iconic America for which he is best known — scenes of Christmas dinner, children playing in the street and national treasures like Ruby Bridges and Rosie the Riveter.
In 1943, a speech previously given by President Franklin Roosevelt inspired Rockwell to create his most famous series, “The Four Freedoms,” which was exhibited all over the United States. The series included four pieces entitled Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Worship, Freedom from Want and Freedom from Fear.
Rockwell moved with his family to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, in 1953, where he spent the rest of his life. My Adventures as an Illustrator — the autobiography Rockwell wrote with the help of his son, Thomas — was published in 1960. In 1963, Rockwell ceased working with The Saturday Evening Post and started drawing illustrations for Look magazine.
The world’s largest collection of original Rockwell art can be found at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge. The artist was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977, and he passed away peacefully in his home the following year.

- 2 Antique Framed Silhouette Lithograph Prints Brown Kellogg Forsyth MacombLocated in Dayton, OH"Two antique lithograph silhouettes of John Forsyth and Alexander Macomb taken from life by William Henry Brown and produced by E.B. & E.C. Kellogg. William Henry Brown and his wife, Emmaline, left Philadelphia around 1859 and settled in a small railraod community of Saxton near Altoona, PA. He had gone there to work on the railroad, since photography had put him out of work. By 1865 he had moved to Erie, PA and was married to Margaret Horrell. They had two sons. She died shortly thereafter and he moved to Wilcox near Kane, PA. Later he lived with a niece in Georgia then married a third time to Sarah Conrad. After her death he returned to South Carolina. Connecticut Historical Society still has the 6 foot silhouette of the ""Dewitt Clinton"" locomotive he had done in 1831. They also have 14 prints he gave them in 1853 of silhouettes that are not part of the Portrait Gallery. A traveling artist, William Brown was a portrait painter and silhouettist, whose subjects were distinguished persons, especially in Philadelphia, New England, and Charleston. Brown was especially noted for a series titled ""Portrait Gallery of Distinguished Americans"", published in 1846 as a book of lithographs from his full-length silhouettes. Also included were biographies of the subjects. He was born in Charleston but spent more time in Philadelphia than in the South. He trained as an engineer but in the early 1830s, devoted himself increasingly to art. He first worked in New England and then went South, spending much time in Charleston in the 1840s and early 1850. In 1842, he was in Natchez, and he was also in St. Louis and New Orleans. However, by the late 1850s demand for his work had lessened, and he returned to being an engineer, first in Philadelphia and then in Charleston where he died in 1883. John Forsyth Sr. (October 22, 1780 – October 21, 1841) was a 19th-century American politician from Georgia. He represented the state in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, and also served as the 33rd Governor of Georgia. As a supporter of the policies of President Andrew Jackson, Forsyth was appointed secretary of state by Jackson in 1834, and continued in that role until 1841 during the presidency of Martin Van Buren...Category
