Norman Rockwell At Home In Vermont jacket cover 

NORMAN ROCKWELL AT HOME IN VERMONT:
The Arlington Years, 1939-1953
by Stuart Murray

Rockwell at HomeDuring the years that Norman Rockwell and his family made their home in Arlington, Vermont, the artist painted some of his greatest works, including "The Four Freedoms" and "Saying Grace." Compared to his former home in the suburbs of New York City, rural Arlington was "like living in another world," and it completely transformed his already successful career as America's leading illustrator. For the first time he began to paint pictures that "grew out of the everyday life of my neighbors," storytelling pictures that touched millions of people around the world. Historical photographs of Rockwell, his wife and children, and the town they made their home, Rockwell paintings and sketches, and the personal recollections of some of the artist's neighbors and models, help the reader imagine life in this small town, and the significance of Rockwell's time there. A regional map, selected bibliography, and listing of area museums and exhibitions suggest paths for further exploration.
