The Art of Norman Rockwell: American Chronicles

The exhibition is dedicated to the 20th-century American painter and illustrator Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) who is best known for his detailed cover illustrations of The Saturday Evening Post magazine for more than four decades.

Rockwell documented key points in American society, from national pride to racism, but it was his acute observations of everyday life that earned him broad popular appeal.

The year before he died he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country's highest civilian honour, for his "vivid and affectionate portraits of our country."

The exhibition features more than 100 paintings, documents and photographs, as well as the complete collection of 323 original covers of The Saturday Evening Post, from 1916 to 1963.
