Norman Rockwell (1894-1978): One of the best known American illustrators, Norman Rockwell became famous for his Saturday Evening Post magazine covers. His work has been reevaluated in recent years, placing him within the context of fine art. Painting an image of country that created a sense of idealism, Rockwell constructed his images with personal symbols and biographic information. He is also known for popularizing such images as Rosie the Riveter and our modern image of Santa Claus. Join the discussion as we examine some of Rockwell’s most famous paintings and examine how those images impacted American culture.
Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.
This event is free to the public.
