Norman Rockwell painted some of the greatest works of his career during the 1960s. It was a time of turbulence in Rockwell’s personal life as well as in the world. Hometown Hero, Citizen of the World: Rockwell in Stockbridge, examines the powerful paintings and fascinating ephemera from the last 25 years of Rockwell’s life in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
The exhibition, featuring more than 60 original artworks, includes travel sketches, an anatomy of Murder in Mississippi, and rarely seen paintings for covers of The Saturday Evening Post, including The Connoisseur.
