Part of the Biography television series from A&E, this documentary reviews the career and personal life of illustrator Norman Rockwell. Considered the most famous and popular illustrator in America, he studied at the Chase School of Art in Mamaroneck, NY, the National Academy of Design, and the Art Students League in New York. He was an illustrator for major periodicals, such as St. Nicholas, Collier's, Life, Judge, Look, and most importantly, the Saturday Evening Post. He produced calendars for Brown & Bigelow, created advertisements, and illustrated such classics as Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. Using oils and an impeccable realistic technique, he idealized small-town America and expressed a personal vision that occasionally rose above sentimentality. ~ John Patrick Sheehan, Rovi
