    1 thought on “Norman Rockwell: Storyteller With A Brush”

    1. This book contained a very interesting combinations of detailed pictures and text to describe the life of Norman Rockwell.I had a hard time distinguishing at first whether or not this was an authentic biography or a fictionalized biography. However, after time spent with the book, I have come to the conclusion that it is a fictionalized biography after finding several comments made by individuals such as teachers and friends in Rockwell's life. The book contained both photography and painted pic [...]

    2. I didn't get the opportunity to see a Norman Rockwell exhibit in town, but the next best thing was to read a book my daughter picked up at school about him. This little 50 page book had good information about him and showed and explained some of his beautiful paintings. I like the quote (quoting Rockwell in phrases) "He thought the paintings 'showed average people doing average things,' and that was how he could 'portray the loftiest ideas.'" I didn't know there is a Norman Rockwell Museum in St [...]

    3. Norman Rockwell was an artist in America during a time of great changes in technology, war and social reform. He beautifully captured many of these changes and the simple quiet moments in individual lives. Beverly Gherman did a wonderful job chronically describing Rockwell’s life for young readers, middle school and up. This is a lengthy picture book and would be best read independently or if aloud broken up into several periods.

    4. I love biographies. I love "behind the scenes" stories (probably why I prefer to go straight to the Special Features on DVDs which Dave doesn't understand). This was perfect. It was informative, quick, and showcased many of N.R.'s paintings. I'm going to pick up a more in-depth biography on him next month.

    5. Nice J biography - just the right amount of information for those with a mild interest. The photos selected of Rockwell's paintings were well suited to illustrate his story and, while I would have loved more, there were enough pictures of Rockwell, his family, and his art to satisfy me. I was surprised by how much this short book taught me about one of my favorite artists.

    6. I can spend hours looking at the illustrations in this book and still not fully grasp all the subtle nuances - like the cameo paintings within the painting, the relections in the mirror, the advertisements in the folded newspapers, and so on. Rockwell's work makes me wonder if I was born at the wrong time one captures the innocence of 1950's America than he does.

    7. An interesting, but not particularly good children's book about Norman Rockwell. It is to dry to interest kids for long and to childish to suit older readers. Overall, I'd say something to hold on to if you happen to own it, but not a book I'd search for.

    8. This was aimed at a younger reader, but it still gave a nice, if brief and sanitized, overview of Norman's life and work. Pictures of several of his paintings were included as well as photos of him. I had hoped to see more of his technique, but the selection at the library was limited.

    9. While this book is geared more towards the elementary school age, it is still marvelous and wonderful. Any fan of Rockwell's works is sure to love this short biography - the pictures, of course, add to its charm. :)

    10. Reviewed this book when I was "picture person" for Daniel's ist grade class. It was a good book to use to teach them about his art.
