    Norman Rockwell: THE MAN BEHIND THE CANVAS, touring exhibition will be available Fall 2015- Fall 2016

    Organized at the LaGrange Art Museum by Karen Briggs, Executive Director

    Exhibition Synopsis:

    This exhibit features original, candid photographs of America’s iconic illustrator Norman Rockwell.  Norman Rockwell needs little introduction, and this exhibit is not meant to be a survey course in Rockwell illustration.  It is a rare and unusual opportunity to get a candid glimpse of the man who privately, humbly, with dry Yankee wit and much wisdom, showed us a better version of ourselves. 

    This exhibit explores the man behind the canvas through the lens of Louis Lamone, and introduces America’s most beloved illustrator in a never-before-seen glimpse into his private life through select anecdotal and personal memorabilia and over 100 black and white photographs from the Charles & Joy Flint Collection.

    Also featured are 100 Saturday Evening Post covers spaning1936–1963.
