Many years after his death, Norman Rockwell is still one of the nation’s best-loved artists and perhaps the only artist known to millions of everyday Americans. So it is only fitting that five stamps depicting some of his best-known works were issued in 1994, the 100th anniversary of his birth.
 
Capturing life in the United States for more than half a century, his paintings were often of ordinary people in everyday situations. During his 64-year career Rockwell painted over 4,000 works, including 321 Saturday Evening Post covers, one of which is pictured on this 29¢ stamp. He also illustrated covers for many other magazines including Family Circle, Life, McCall’s, Popular Science, and TV Guide. Although good training, technique and meticulous research all played a part, much of his popularity is due to the sensitivity and deep affection he brought to his subjects.
 
In a tribute to this remarkable artist, author Robin Langley Sommer stated, “His feeling for the beauty and importance of everyday life was of a rare order, and his ability to make others feel it as well was surely not far removed from genius. This gift for perceiving what E.B. White called the glory of everything is Norman Rockwell’s most enduring legacy.”
