Deborah Solomon on the life and art of Norman Rockwell

December 3, 2013

Guest:  Deborah Solomon

Did the life of artist Norman Rockwell share the same optimistic, middle-of-the-road, folksy sensibility as his art? Biographer and art critic, DEBORAH SOLOMON, pored through unpublished letters and documents of the “artist in chief” to tell the story of the repressed, lonely painter responsible for the iconic covers of The Saturday Evening Post. Her new book is American Mirror: The Life and Art of Norman Rockwell.
