Today we celebrate the birthday of Golden Age Illustrator (and Norman Rockwell’s hero) Howard Pyle! The artist would have been 159 years old, and Norman Rockwell Museum looks forward to exploring his lasting influence this summer through the exhibition Howard Pyle: American Master Rediscovered, organized by our friends at the Delaware Art Museum.
Speaking of exhibitions, this Saturday, March 10, we open Everett Raymond Kinstler: Pulps to Portraits. The exhibition looks at the career of the contemporary illustrator turned portrait artist, who has painted such noted figures as Katharine Hepburn, Tony Bennett, Tom Wolfe, James Montgomery Flagg, and Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. The famed portraitist will be joining us for the opening night festivities, perhaps with a little help from his friends! See you at the Museum.
