Originally produced for PBS and narrated by 3-time Emmy Award nominee Mason Adams, the documentary film Norman Rockwell: An American Portrait is a classic, featuring the art and life of Illustrator and Painter Norman Rockwell, complete with commentary and remembrances from art historians, close friends, and the artist himself to create an entertaining celebration of Norman Rockwell’s American Legacy.
Americana legend Norman Rockwell walked into the offices of The Saturday Evening Post in 1916, and walked out as the new cover art illustrator for America’s favorite magazine. So began Rockwell’s career and the unique love affair between the artist and the American public - spanning five decades, over 300 magazine covers and many more acclaimed works (some as Art Director for Boys’ Life Magazine).
Norman Rockwell’s paintings have become the iconic images of American Art and life, bridging the era from the horse and buggy to the landing of a man on the moon. In his portraits of daily life, he chronicled everyday people while capturing essential truths about human strength and weakness, success and failure.
Some of his everlasting works include The Golden Rule, The Four Freedoms Series (Freedom of Worship, Freedom of Want [the Thanksgiving Scene], Freedom of Speech and Freedom From Fear), Rosie the Riveter, The Gossips, Southern Justice, Triple Portrait and the important The Problem We All Live With, depicting a little girl walking to a newly desegregated school with an escort of four large US marshals.
This DVD presentation proves, when speaking of a Rockwell painting, one can truly say “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
