Norman Rockwell Magazine Covers

Complete List - Part One: 1913 to 1917


Norman Rockwell's artwork appearing on magazine covers helped establish his position as America's favorite illustrator.

During the early years of his career as an illustrator, very few months passed between cover assignments. Especially after his big break at The Saturday Evening Post, Rockwell was in high demand for magazine covers.

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.
