The Faith Of America by: Normal Rockwell
Norman Rockwell's famousSaturday Evening Post covers, theFour Freedoms he painted during the years of World War II, and his depictions of American towns, families, and traditions are all represented in this concise volume. Avidly collected by legendary filmmakers Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, the works offer a picture of America that we all continue to believe in, a world of hope and humanity.
Fred Bauer writes about Rockwell's message of optimism and the artist's faith in America and its people, in a forthright and sympathetic text complemented by numerous Rockwell favorites in all their warmth and color. Bauer visits Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and Arlington, Vermont, talking to the people who lived with Rockwell and posed for his anecdotal pictures, the people about whom the artist said, "If you are interested in the characters you draw and understand them and love them, why, the people who see your pictures are bound to feel the same way.
