Keepers of the Flame:
Parrish, Wyeth, Rockwell and the Narrative Tradition
Saturday, July 14, 2018
5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Commentary by Dennis Nolan, Exhibition Curator, at 6:00 p.m.
Organized by Norman Rockwell Museum and curated by illustrator/historian Dennis Nolan, Keepers of the Flame: Parrish, Wyeth, Rockwell and the Narrative Tradition traces the unbreakable thread connecting American illustration, and legendary artists Maxfield Parrish, N.C. Wyeth, and Norman Rockwell, to the roots of European painting through their own revered teachers. At the heart of this story are Parrish’s lush neoclassical fantasies, Wyeth’s vibrant compositions and characters inspired by classic literature; and Rockwell’s iconic humanistic portrayals for popular twentieth century publications.
