A classic back in print and newly illustrated--the life of an American legend, in his own words My Adventures as an Illustrator captures the humanity and good humor of America's most beloved artist, Norman Rockwell (1894-1978). In words that are as lively and full of detail as his paintings, he tells the eventful story of his life: his New York City boyhood, his apprentice days at the Art Students League, his first fateful trip to the offices of the Saturday Evening Post, and his moves to Arlington, Vermont, and Stockbridge, Massachusetts, where he found the small-town subjects for which he is best remembered. Throughout Rockwell gives special emphasis to his work as an artist: he tells of his favorite models, and their moving personal stories; he candidly reveals his biggest artistic flops; and he documents step-by-step the conception and execution of one of his most famous Post covers, Family Tree. This Definitive Edition of My Adventures as an Illustrator includes color reproductions of more than 130 paintings and drawings by Rockwell, carefully selected to illustrate the text, reveal the artist's creative process, and shed light on lesser-known aspects of his work, such as his images of women. Also included are a new introduction by Abigail Rockwell, the artist's granddaughter; a chronology of the artist's life, illustrated with archival photographs; and an annotated bibliography. Exactingly edited and produced, this volume will be a primary reference on the life and career of Norman Rockwell, and delightful reading for anyone who enjoys his work.
