An Election Day Tribute to Norman Rockwell

 In Artists & Special Collections, Norman Rockwell, Video

Today is Election Day in the United States; it is a day when Americans will flock to the polls and exercise their freedom to vote for their favorite political candidates.

Norman Rockwell, Election Day

“Election Day” by Norman Rockwell. October 30, 1948 cover of The Saturday Evening Post.

Perhaps no other artist is more closely associated with depicting the freedom of the American spirit than Norman Rockwell. His illustrations evoke messages of family, equality, tolerance, love of country and imagination.

Much has been written about Norman Rockwell, but the best way to really experience his message is to look at his body of work. The following video segment shows a terrific montage of Rockwell’s famous cover illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post, all set to the swingin’ sounds of Benny Goodman, another American original. Please enjoy! (And remember to get out and vote!)

Through association with the Norman Rockwell Licensing Company (the estate of the artist) and Curtis Publishing (owner of the copyrights of The Saturday Evening Post artwork), Park West Gallery has been able in recent years to bring new and exceptional collecting opportunities for Norman Rockwell artworks to enthusiastic collectors.
