Norman Rockwell [1894-1978] was a prolific illustrator who captured the essence of American life. In a career spanning 54 years he produced over 4000 works, including well over 300 covers for Saturday Evening Post magazine. Among his iconic works are those in the World War II poster series “The Four Freedoms.” Rockwell lived and worked in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, for the last 25 years of his life; a museum of his work now resides in the town.
