Norman Rockwell was nearly as prolific an artist as he was gifted. In addition to his many paintings, he created over 500 magazine covers and thousands of commercial illustrations. In this volume, one of Rockwell's sons has carefully reviewed his father's vast collection of work and chosen his favorite representations from each decade. Many of the pieces come from the family's private collection and are published here for the first time; however, some perennial favorites, such as Triple Self Portrait, After the Prom, and Girl at the Mirror, are also included. Many of the images have been reproduced directly from the originals so details such as brushstrokes and the texture of the canvas are visible. The Best of Norman Rockwell will please readers any time of year, but there are quite a few Thanksgiving and Christmas pictures that make this a great book to have around during the holidays.About the Author:
Tom Rockwell is the editor of Norman Rockwell: Artist and Illustrator, and he collaborated with his father on Norman Rockwell's autobiography, My Adventures as an Illustrator. He is also the author of books for young readers, including the award-winning How to Eat Fried Worms and, more recently, How to Fight a Girl.
