Norman Rockwell was a great artist, and yet was ill-treated by the prejudiced and snobbish art critics of his time – not by the American people who loved him!
In the American art scene, Abstract painting was somehow a “rule” by then, but Rockwell´ s heart was not inclined to that kind of art.
Norman Rockwell´s pictures are not only great art. They also are historical documents of the normal American life in those days.
This is why the Americans ought to honor Rockwell´s memory for his priceless legacy, and forgive those who have never understood his unique talent.
