Happy Birthday Norman Rockwell!! This familiar American illustrator (1894) was an all time favorite of my Dad, Todd Crittenden. For as long as I can remember, Norman Rockwell was a fond and common figure of conversation around our home. My husband and I had the pleasure of viewing a Rockwell Saturday Evening Post Cover Exhibit in Phoenix, Arizona with my parents and children. One of the things I find interesting about Rockwell’s Post covers is they form a timeline, not only of history, but of Rockwell’s artistic evolution. The first was published in 1916, the last in 1963. His work provides a slice of America…an in depth look at 20th century life in the USA. The illustration I have chosen to feature is a personal favorite, one he did for Look in 1964, The Problem We All Live With. In it we see the dignified young girl escorted to school amidst evidence of racial scorn.
