. . .children want to believe in Santa Claus just as fervently as we adults want to believe in Peace on Earth and goodwill toward men. —Norman Rockwell
During his forty-seven year affiliation with The Saturday Evening Post, Norman Rockwell was celebrated for his special holiday cover illustrations, which were commissioned to mark a full spectrum of annual events for an enthusiastic public, from Thanksgiving, Christmas and The New Year to Valentine’s Day and April Fools’ Day.
Throughout the decades, his holiday depictions shifted in subject and style, resulting in a broad range of imagery inspired by both the past and the present.
This exhibition featuring original Saturday Evening Post cover tearsheets includes many of Norman Rockwell’s most memorable and enduring holiday images.
