See how Rockwell’s technique changed in five years. “My grandfather…always kept looking for ways to improve his technique,” writes Abigail Rockwell, “and step out of his comfort zone.”
The Real Rockwell
Abigail Rockwell — jazz singer, songwriter, and granddaughter of Norman Rockwell — joins the Post to celebrate the life and legacy of America’s beloved artist, sharing behind-the-scene stories only a family member would know in her blog The Real Rockwell.
“Some say life will never be as perfect as life in a Norman Rockwell painting,” says Abigail. “But my grandfather’s work isn’t about an unachievable ideal. Pop’s work is about believing in the goodness of people. It’s about finding that goodness in ourselves and others and in the moments we spend with one another.”
Art and illustration critic David Apatoff takes a closer look at the men and women who created many of the Post’s most memorable covers. He also reviews other well-regarded illustrators and shares stunning but rarely seen sketches and paintings.
