For the Ages: Norman Rockwell’s Photo Realism translates into art


I’ve enjoyed Rockwell’s art ever since my art classes in high school when we studied masters like him. It’s amazing to me what he did with a staged Black & White photo. The coloring and slight adjustments to make the scene stand out show his genius. If you’d like to see more examples GO HERE.

Dave, I used to work in an art gallery that featured Rockwell originals. Sometimes we would have three or four in at a time, and I aways felt incredibly lucky to be able to see SO MANY of these amazing original oil paintings side by side, in one place. As you can tell, I'm a fan, too!!

What a great experience. When I'm traveling I always look for art museums or gallerys.
