Product Description

Review

"There is no mistaking a Norman Rockwell painting. His knack for capturing honest folk in the nostalgic light of a simpler America made him one of the most beloved artists of his time, creating instant recognition for his popular illustrations. Some might scoff at the now long-faded idealism that informed his canvases, but for many Americans Rockwell's work has come to symbolize the heart and soul of a more sympathetic society, one free from the condescending sneer of cynicism. Fred Bauer, author of this well-researched and extensive collection is definitely one of the deceased painter's most informed and ardent champions. Included here are the pieces he believes represent the, "more inspirational illustrations, the ones that lifted spirits and filled doubting hearts with hope and faith." Accordingly, he groups them in chapters addressing specific types of faith, such as the kind found in loved ones, traditions, country, etc., and Bauer's text offers much more than simple description. He takes us on a journey to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, Rockwell's immortalized home town, where he meets with the painter's widow, searches out former models, and chats up the local folks who knew Rockwell not as a maker of lasting icons, but as a friend and neighbor. With careful attention and thoughtful insight he has created a kind of written portrait that offers a level of understanding and appreciation for the artist that can only add to the enjoyment shared by Rockwell's countless admirers."

Excellent book. Norman Rockwell was a true genius of his genre. There are not many people who can hold a torch to his style of painting and the people on the page are indeed real. He captures that whole essence of a by-gone America that we here in great Britain can only marvel at.

Just need to save the money now to go to see his work! This book is the next best thing....

We visited the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge MA - a lovely, interesting place in pleasant parkland. I saw this book in the shop, but thought it too heavy to travel with our suitcases already overloaded. So I was pleasantly surprised to find it available on Amazon. So pleased to have this reminder of our visit, with its many illustrations and also details about Rockwell's life and work.

Not what I expected, and not as good as others we have in our collection. We found many items just repeated from other publications.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book 19 Sept. 2005
By P. J. M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is great. The author talks to Norman Rockwell's widow several months after Mr. Rockwell's death and her words are enlightening. The author travels to two of Mr. Rockwells home towns and speaks with people who posed for many of the pictures.

It was heart warming reading this book while looking at the nearly 100 pictures the author describes in detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the best representations of Americana 7 May 2013
By A customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Of all the artists that we have produced in America over the past two centuries, Norman Rockwell is the finest, both in terms of artistry as well as story portrayals. This is a coffee table book for us that has entertained both us as well as our guests for many years. I wish that Norman Rockwell was still with us, but if he can't be, then this is one of the best representations of his wonderful work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good old Norman 3 Jun. 2010

Beautiful prints that speak for themselves. They depict not only the simplicity and innocence of every day life events of a time that was, but they evoke so many different emotions that we almost forgot we have inside us.

I bought this for my future father-in-law for Christmas 2011. He couldn't put it down after opening it. I even ordered last minute and it came in plenty of time for me to wrap and give it to him Christmas Eve. Shipped in excellent condition!
