From Library Journal
Published by Abrams in 1985 for $45, this volume contains the same high quality at a significantly lower price. The coffee-table-size production includes 659 illustrations-129 in full color-some of which are foldouts. The illustrations cover the gamut of Rockwell's career, and the book is capped off with a gallery of his Saturday Evening Post covers. A steal at this price. For all collections.Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Book Review
This richly illustrated book brings together 14 essays by such luminaries as former Metropolitan Museum of Art director Thomas Hoving and art historian Robert Rosenblum, and finally and firmly anchors Rockwell's reputation in the art-historical world. The catalog of an exhibition at Atlanta's High Museum of Art, the book's 133 color reproductions are marvelously large, clear, and true in color and offer what is probably the best introduction to Rockwell for anyone who takes his illustration seriously--or anyone who doesn't, yet. Indispensable though it may be, however, Pictures for the American People may slightly irritate lifelong Rockwell fans, especially those who grew up with the Saturday Evening Post and fell for Rockwell at a time when his nonpareil illustrations were mocked by the moderns. And experienced Rockwell...

From School Library Journal
Grade 1-4–Readers meet one of America's favorite artists in this fictional account. Rockwell is commissioned to create four calendar paintings–one for each season. He chooses his best young model, Scotty, to pose for the series, but he can't find the right dog. Then a stray Beagle begins following the boy's dog, and she fits into the paintings perfectly. Through casual conversations between artist and model, facts about Rockwell and his life are revealed. The two talk about not liking school, learning the craft of illustration, and the popularity of the Saturday Evening Post covers. The information fits naturally into the dialogue. Miller's realistic style is reminiscent of Rockwell's art. Softer and less crisp, these nostalgic paintings enhance the feeling of the simpler time and place that the...

Book Review
Boy Scout campouts, backyard barbecues, Christmas trees, cheerful barbers: no artist quite converted slice-of-life realism into idealized portraits of the American dream as ably as Norman Rockwell (1894-1978), whose distinguished career art historian Laura Claridge captures just as ably in this welcome biography.

Rockwell, Claridge writes, had ambitions to be considered a great artist, but he abandoned them early on in the struggle to make a living through his abilities as an illustrator. He need not have worried about money quite as much as he did, Claridge suggests, for over his long career he produced more than 4,000 paintings and earned millions of dollars; still, as we learn, Rockwell was a complicated man, beset by all sorts of worries and more expressive on canvas than he ever was in the ordinary situations of...
