Inspiration: Norman Rockwell

Norman Rockwell

Today is the birthday of 20th-century American painter and illustrator Norman Rockwell (February 3, 1894 – November 8, 1978). His works are very lively with minute details. Most of his works have a touch of humor which makes them even more appealing. He is mainly famous for the cover illustrations he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine. For more than four decades he illustrated everyday life scenarios for the magazine. We can get a glimpse of the then American life from his artworks. He is also noted for his work for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) & cover designs for their publication Boys’ Life, calendars, and other illustrations. Here is a collection of some of his remarkable works:
