|Many of Rockwell's images have become iconic.|
|Uneasy Christmas in the Birthplace of Christ|
There is a sense in which Rockwell is also a truth-teller. Whereas other magazines placed celebrities, stars and starlets on their covers to sell magazines, Rockwell elevated our common lives to celeb status, for all of our lives and their foibles are to some extent an entertainment. A few years back, Time magazine chose "You" as "TIME Person of the Year." Norman Rockwell had been doing that for decades.
The other day I posted images from the American Chronicles exhibition currently on display at the Tampa Museum of Art. Here are more pictures from that exhibit.
|Daniel Boone, My great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather.|
|The war provided many stories to tell.|
|Slim Pickins, for the movie poster Stagecoach|
