Norman Rockwell

I showed the America I knew and observed to others who might not have noticed.
— Norman Rockwell

Norman Rockwell created a product on which people could depend. Though this is reflected in more than 4,000 illustrations completed throughout his 47 year career, he is most famous for his contributions to the Saturday Evening Post. Beginning in 1916, he produced 332 covers for the Post. It was not unheard of for The Post to automatically increase its print order by 250,000 copies when an issue had a cover by Rockwell.
