Corcoran Gallery of Art
The Corcoran Gallery of Art features one original Norman Rockwell painting in its permanent collection.
Of course, the Museum has many other fine works of art in addition to this Norman Rockwell original painting.
The museum's collection includes, among other things, a Frederic Remington bronze, Off the Range (Coming through the Rye).
Also included are two famous George Washington paintings, George Washington by Gilbert Stuart and Washington Before Yorktown by Rembrandt Peale.
There is also an extensive collection of original European artwork, including Repose by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Un verre sur une table (A Glass on a Table) by Pablo Picasso and Willows of Vetheuil by Claude Monet. There is also an extensive photograph collection, pottery, glass and other decorative art pieces.
This Museum is definitely worth a visit as are all the "Norman Rockwell museums" in Washington, DC.
The sole Norman Rockwell painting in the Museum's collection (so far) is Norton Wins.
Norton Wins appeared inside of the March 1917 issue of St. Nicholas. Norton Wins was also the title of the article by Julien Josephsen and appeared on page 429.
The caption under the illustration in the story reads "Ralph made a desperate flying leap into the demolished cab."
Norton Wins, a 26.25 x 20.75 inch or 66.5 x 52.5 cm oil on canvas, was previously owned by Frank B Hand, Jr.

Norman Rockwell Quotes:
I'll never have enough time to paint all the pictures I'd like to.
No man with a conscience can just bat out illustrations. He's got to put all his talent and feeling into them!
Some people have been kind enough to call me a fine artist. I've always called myself an illustrator. I'm not sure what the difference is. All I know is that whatever type of work I do, I try to give it my very best. Art has been my life.
Right from the beginning, I always strived to capture everything I saw as completely as possible.
The secret to so many artists living so long is that every painting is a new adventure. So, you see, they're always looking ahead to something new and exciting. The secret is not to look back.
I can take a lot of pats on the back. I love it when I get admiring letters from people. And, of course, I'd love it if the critics would notice me, too.
You must first spend some time getting your model to relax. Then you'll get a natural expression.
