The Norman Rockwell Museum holds an outstanding collection of American illustration art in addition to its hallmark collection of original paintings, drawings, and studies by Norman Rockwell. These recent gifts have been made available through the generosity of enthusiastic collectors and museum supporters, who have embraced the Museum’s mission as the home of American illustration art.

The Museum’s illustration collections reflect the history of a vibrant and ever-changing field, and we look forward to their continued growth as a foundation of the Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies, the nation’s first center for scholarship relating to the art of American illustration. We are grateful to the collectors who have established this important legacy by making important artworks, including those on view, available for study and public enjoyment.
