Norman Rockwell

Norman Rockwell was a 20th-century American painter and illustrator.  He’s most famous for the cover illustrations that he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine for more than four decades.

Rosie the Riveter, the Four Freedoms series, and covers for some of the Boys Life magazine (which is a magazine that’s published by the Boy Scouts Of America), are just a small amount of the artwork that he’s famous for.

The great thing for anyone who wants to collect things by Norman Rockwell is the fact that there are literally a ton of items on the market for you to purchase.

You can collect original artwork of course—but there’s also posters, mugs, prints, ads, magazines, covers, planters with a Norman Rockwell image, dinnerware (like plates and saucers), the list of items can go on and on.  You could even have a collection that revolves around a certain print.

I happen to love Rosie the Riveter, what is your favorite Norman Rockwell image?
