Every time I see a Rockwell painting, I have to look at it for a few minutes to appreciate the details of it. Most people only look at a painting for about 4 seconds before they move on to a new one in museums, but if I were to go to a Rockwell exhibit, I'd probably be there for days. I love that he painted people doing everyday things, like The Lineman.
Without thinking too much about it in specific terms, I was showing the America I knew and observed to others who might not have noticed.—Norman Rockwell
Edit: I just found out that there's a whole museum founded by Rockwell himself. What a cheeky fellow. Click here to see an interactive timeline of his life.
