The largest and most significant public collection of original works by celebrated twentieth century illustrator, Norman Rockwell, the Norman Rockwell Museum exhibits a comprehensive array of paintings, drawings, studies, photographs, and artifacts that reflect the evolution of the artist's life and career. Norman Rockwell's iconic World War II era Four Freedoms paintings (1943), The Marriage License (1955), a witty narrative inspired by an important rite of passage; and The Runaway (1958), a poignant reflection on childhood are among the Museum's extensive holdings. As America's preeminent illustrator, Norman Rockwell was among the most successful mass communicators of the twentieth century. Painting a sweeping range of topics during a period of extensive technological and social change, Rockwell helped forge a sense of national identity through his art.
