In May of 1914, a young Norman Rockwell entered artwork in his first exhibition: a group show at the New Rochelle Public Library in New Rochelle, New York. He was 20 years old.
One hundred years later, a traveling exhibition of some of Rockwell’s most iconic original works is making its European debut. Organized by Norman Rockwell Museum, American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell will be on view at the Fondazione Roma-Arte-Musei in Rome, Italy, from November 11, 2014 through February 8, 2015.
Artist Norman Rockwell’s name has long been synonymous with the holidays—during the Christmas season, the American public has looked forward to his festive images, originally appearing on the covers and pages of their favorite magazines, and on holiday cards that brought the spirit of the holidays home. In celebration of this tradition, Norman Rockwell Museum presents a series of special holiday events and the exhibition, Norman Rockwell: Home for the Holidays, on view at the Museum from November 22, 2014 through February 8, 2015.
Norman Rockwell Museum announces the new accessibility of tens of thousands of digitized black-and-white photographs from its Norman Rockwell Photographic Print Collection—the largest single collection in the Norman Rockwell Archive. Digital images are now freely viewable on the Museum’s website under “View the Collections,” and by appointment through the Stockbridge museum’s Reference Center, which has a computer workstation to accommodate its many visiting researchers.
