Deborah Solomon on the life and art of Norman Rockwell
December 3, 2013
Guest:Â 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 Biographer and art critic, DEBORAH SOLOMON, pored through unpublished letters and documents of the â€śartist in chiefâ€ť to tell the story of the repressed, lonely painter responsible for the iconic covers of The Saturday Evening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.
