Norman Rockwell's America
The United States' best known, best loved illustrator
As a British art critic, before you criticize Norman Rockwell's exhibition 'Norman Rockwell's America... in Dulwich', make sure it's not just out of ignorance of his intentions, or simply misunderstanding him. As Norman Rockwell (1894 -1978) was pitching his stall to the neighbourly, welcoming folk, pioneering in spirit typical of Grant Wood's 'American Gothic', it is this American realism ( that of the visual jokes and quirky insights considered eccentric from British cousins across the pond) that is marvellous; America's Exceptionalism.
