Our nationally recognized collection of Norman Rockwell's art, established in 1976, commemorates Norman Rockwell's Vermont years and the entire span and diversity of his career (1911-1978). Chronological display of more than 2,500 Norman Rockwell magazine covers, advertisements, paintings, facts, and other published works shows Rockwell's development as an illustrator and links his work to the political, economic, and cultural history of the United States.
Americans first knew and loved Norman Rockwell’s art and style as it appeared on and between the covers of America’s most popular magazines. These magazine covers, advertisements, and illustrations are at the heart of our collection.
The Saturday Evening Post covers which most people are familiar with represent a fraction of Rockwell’s art. He also painted covers for such forgotten magazines as Judge, Leslie’s, The Literary Digest, The Country Gentleman, and a host of others.
Our Norman Rockwell Museum is located at the Crossroads of Vermont on Route 4, in Rutland just 2 miles East of Route 7.
