Depicting Freedom: Norman Rockwell's Journey in Context

with James Kimble
Thursday, June 25, 2020 - 6:00pm7:00pm.

This talk follows Norman Rockwell's career and how his dissatisfaction with the restrictive rules of the Post gradually led him to break the rules subtly and then to break away from the magazine altogether, leading directly to his Civil Rights-era paintings.

Rockwell's career is presented in four sections: Norman as Rule Follower; Norman as Rulebreaker; Norman as Advocate; and Norman as Model. These sections provide context for Rockwell's famous Four Freedoms and for his later images from the 1960s and 1970s.

Doors open at 5:30 pm. More
