Review:

“Norman Rockwell: A Definitive Catalogue speaks eloquently, simply as an object, of its sponsors’ belief in its subject’s art-historical importance. The scholarship is stupendous and thorough. Nearly 4,000 entries - all but a few illustrated and all identified as to medium, size, date of origin and whereabouts of original (surprisingly often ‘’unknown’’) -clearly express the intention that the book be used for reference; and its two volumes are bound and cased as if heavy archival use was anticipated.”—Arthur C. Danto, The New York Times

“Essential to a better understanding of the most popular American illustrator ever. Rockwell’s work was such a familiar part of our lives that we may never have noticed how great it was. Brought together in one place, it is a shovelful of stardust.”—Yankee

“Collectively, the illustrations provide a fascinating journey through an idealized 20th-century America, absorbing because its myths remained largely unchanged until the late 1960s.”—Wilson Quarterly

“Why another collection of Rockwell covers?, think again. This publication is a serious and scholarly affair, presenting every work traceable from Rockwell’s long career.”—Phoebe-Lou Adams, The Atlantic

“An impressive and valuable reference work.”—Library Journal

“Norman Rockwell: A Definitive Catalogue surpasses other compilations in scope and is a valuable research aid.”—Art Documentation: Journal of the Art Libraries Society of North America

“Lest anyone think that Rockwell painted only homespun scenes of Americana for Saturday Evening Post covers, this two-volume, 1200-page compendium of his known paintings and drawings sets the record straight. His forays into commercial art included lively, Dickensian Christmas cards and a strong charcoal of Abe Lincoln as a young rail-splitter. His biting canvas, Negro in the Suburbs, reminiscent of Ben Shahn, rings with a cry for social justice. His series of sketches of women gossiping transcends all genres, and his pictures of astronauts landing on the moon are genuinely moving. Ranging from wacky doodles to richly illustrated story illustrations, this mammoth catalogue, the product of 10 years’ work, rescues Rockwell from his detractors and preserves those contributions worth saving.”—Publishers Weekly
