The pictures of Norman Rockwell~ (nee 1894 morte 1978) were recognized and loved by Americans in every station of life. The cover of The Saturday Evening Post was a showcase for his artistry for over forty years. Designing the covers for that magazine gave him an audience larger than that of any other artist in history. He depicted in his lifetime a unique collection of Americana, a series of vignettes of remarkable warmth and humor. In addition, he painted a great number of pictures for story illustrations, advertising campaigns, books, calendars,posters.
In 1957 the United States Chamber of Commerce in Washington cited him as a Great Living American, saying that..."Through the magic of your talent, the folks next door - their gentle sorrows, their modest joys - have enriched our own lives and given us new insight into our countrymen."
We are pleased and proud to be able to present a limited vintage circa 1980's collection of these well loved portraits for the needleartist. Paint this design with your own needle, and it will become a treasured part of your family's Norman Rockwell collection for years to come.
