Norman Rockwell Museum

Discussion in 'Wanderlust and Travel' started by Aqualung, Aug 25, 2008.

  1. Took the kids to Tanglewood this past weekend. Went out early and visited the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge before the concert; my wife and I hadn't been out there in over 20 years. When we went to the museum, it was a few of his paintings in an old house.

    Now, they're housed in a world-class museum that gets over 200,000 visitors per year. They also have his last studio on the grounds. Highly recommend a visit, they have a lot of his original oils, as well as every Saturday Evening Post cover and his famous "Four Freedoms" paintings.

    We attended a short presentation, given by the male African American model in this painting. The girl next to him is his cousin. It was neat to hear him relate his experience modeling for Norman Rockwell.

    8. His last studio, from downtown Stockbridge, moved 'in total'. It was accurately situated, so that his studio windows faced north (hmmm, wonder why :wink:) .
