Norman Rockwell, Saturday Night Post
An extraordinarily gifted illustrator, Norman Rockwell (American, 1894–1978) began his career at a historic moment when mass-market magazines had begun entering millions of American homes. He went on to illustrate for The Saturday Evening Post for nearly five decades, creating 321 illustrations for its covers alone.Through his warmhearted, humorous, and superbly wrought illustrations, Rockwell created images of an idealized nation peppered with small towns and filled with industrious, down-to-earth folks. His artworks reflected the currents of American life, the way we were, the way we acted, and the way we treated each other. Most importantly, he showed us the way we wanted to be. By the 1940s, Rockwell was considered a national living treasure. Even today, the well-worn adjective Rockwellian signals a lifestyle that continues amidst an ever-changing world.—Judy Goffman Cutler, American Illustrators Gallery, New York CityAll of Pomegranate’s calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ and manufactured by an FSC certified printer.
