Melting Pot

The Golden Rule, 1961 by Norman Rockwell, Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, MA.

Rockwell is often dismissed by "serious" critics because of his popular appeal and because he painted magazine covers. He was a very skilled artist and illustrator deserves at least the consideration given to Maxfield Parrish.

Norman Rockwell is one amazing artist! Although I dislike the superrealistic style (instead of taking a photo anyway) it's his composition and characters that make the difference. Thanks for reminding me of his great art.

Interesting painting. It isn't what I would 'expect' from Rockwell.
