He was my first hero when I was about 10 yrs old. Still the best in the last 100 yrs.

Wow, he became a hero for me as well, at around the same age. He was the first artist that inspired me to become an artist myself. My taste in art has changed dramatically... but his art still affects me an I still look up to him as a hero.

This makes me long for times when things were not so complicated....Or maybe they were but I was little and didn't see the world's rough edges. No matter, Rockwell's painting put a smile on my face.

Years ago my wife and I vacationed in Vermont and found a small "Unauthorized" Norman Rockwell Museum in an old schoolhouse. In it were prints of many of his famous paintings and the hook of the place was that the persons running and present at the museum had all posed for the characters in the paintings. They explained that the official NR museum in Stockbridge, Mass. which had the original paintings, had rebuffed their attempts to be part of that place, so they opened their own. That was years ago and I would guess many of them have since passed but this was a nice reminder.

Do you mean the old church on rt.7 in Arlington?
I went to school with Tom's younger sister and brothers. He's still in the area running a small (?) business.

Pretty sure thats it. Could not remember whether it was in Arlington or Burlington or some other town ending in "ington"

That sounds like a charming place and what a good idea to have the original models there. I will google and see if I can find it. Maybe they are still around.

Rockwell was a brilliant artist and time is proving it.

Remember the kid who was moving into a new neighborhood and was holding a baseball glove ? I played high school baseball, football, and basketball with him. He was an excellent athlete and a better friend. He's still alive and is now 59 years old.

Rockwell is clearly the most underappreciated artist of all time. If he were born 200 years ago in Europe, there'd be a religion based on his work. Van Gogh could only dream of being so talented.

A bit of Van Gogh trivia: Did you read, I do ot recall the source, the fact that Van Gogh had vision probllems which gave his work the brush strokes we recognize for his work? If, when looking at one of his paintings, you squint your eyes, you can see a different result.

I feel that Norman Rockwell's work touches our hearts and souls.

Didn't know that, learn something new every single day. Next time I see a Van Gogh, I'll try what you suggest.

Comparing Rockwell to Van Gogh is comparing apples to oranges. Rockwell was a very talented illustrator, Van Gogh was an amazing painter.

Van Gogh wasn't a "painter", he was an impressionist. Impressionists do so because they don't have the skill or discipline to create a true painting.

Hmm,
He was a real boy?
Did someone accuse him of being a girl?
I always assumed that he was a boy. Its pretty obvious.

I love Norman Rockwell's work, of which a reunion of subjects seems more than appropriate. I discovered him through the brilliant historian Robert Rosenblum, who set the critical record straight on this neglected painters significant work.

Great to see the models for Norman Rockwell.
I was a fan at 16 .
His works drew negative comments from "critics".
The art world continues.

Rockwell revisited via reunion. Pretty cool...
