Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) is the most famous American illustrator of the 20th century. Born in New York City Norman Rockwell entered the Chase School of Fine and Applied Art in 1908. After high school, he studied at the Art Student League and worked with George Bridgeman and Thomas Fogarty. At the age of sixteen, he illustrated his first book “Tell me why".

In 1916 Norman Rockwell proposed his first cover for The Saturday Evening Post Magazine. Then he became the painter of the American way of life and illustrated many famous illustrations and covers for the Saturday Evening Post for 47 years. In all, Rockwell painted 321 covers for the Post.

Rockwell created famous posters about World War II. In 1935 he illustrated the novels of Mark Twain: Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Rockwell also painted portraits of Eisenhower, Kennedy and Nasser, and even his own triple self-portrait: a reflection, reflecting by looking in a mirror.

The development of photography and the decline of illustration led him to end his relationship with The Post in the '60s. At the end of the decade, he worked for Look Magazine and focused on more political themes like poverty, racism, and the Vietnam War.

He died at home in Stockbridge, Massachusetts on November 8, 1978.
