Norman Rockwel - Blacksmith's Boy – Heel And Toe - Canvas Prints
A young talent, Norman Rockwell received his first commission at age 17. By 1916, a 22-year-old Rockwell had painted his first cover for The Saturday Evening Post—the beginning of a 47-year and 321-cover relationship with the most prestigious magazine of the era.
Rockwell's success stemmed to a large degree from his careful appreciation for everyday American scenes, the warmth of small-town life in particular. Often what he depicted was treated with a certain simple charm and sense of humour. He created World War II posters and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977.View Artist Collection
