Product Description

Details

Norman Rockwell's America was not all white. As early as 1936, Rockwell was portraying people of color with empathy and a dignity often denied them at the time. Hidden in Plain Sight: The Other People in Norman Rockwell's America explores the stories of the Asian, African, and Native Americans who modeled for Norman Rockwell.

In this engrossing and humorous volume, Jane Allen Petrick explores what motivated Norman Rockwell to slip people of color "into the picture" in the first place. And in so doing, she persuasively documents the famous illustrator's deep commitment to and pointed portrayals of ethnic tolerance, portrayals that up to now have been, as Norman Rockwell biographer Laura Claridge so clearly put it, "bizarrely neglected".

Hidden in Plain Sight: The Other People in Norman Rockwell's America is an eye opener for everyone who loves Norman Rockwell, everyone who hates Norman Rockwell, and for all those people who never thought much about Norman Rockwell because they believed Norman Rockwell never thought much about them. This book may expand the way you think about Norman Rockwell, and could deepen the way you think about Norman Rockwell's America.

Paperback: 143 pages.
