Norman Rockwell Advertising Art
Complete List - 1940 Through 1944
Norman Rockwell advertising artwork was published hundreds of times over the years.
Schenley Cream of Kentucky Bourbon was the major Rockwell advertiser of this period, both in number of works commissioned and works published. Rockwell also picked up General Motors and Mobil during this period.
Norman Rockwell's aptitude for touching his viewer's emotions and his sense of humor were prized not only by magazine art editors, but also by advertisers as well..
Rockwell's advertising career started in 1914 with a Heinz ad in the Boy Scout Handbook and ended 64 years later in 1976 with Lancaster Turkeys. There may be later published advertising art, but I have been unable to find any.

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.
