No Norman Rockwell Museum in Philadelphia


The Norman Rockwell Museum in Philadelphia no longer exists. This Museum was another fine museum. Alas, it is no longer.

The Museum was founded by brothers, Dr. Donald Stoltz and Marshall Stoltz. The Stoltz brothers started collecting Norman Rockwell artwork at an early age. They eventually realized the perfect storage vehicle for their burgeoning collection -a Museum.

The Stoltz brothers also authored a good Norman Rockwell book, ***Advertising.shtml***.

The Museum's collection of prints, including a complete run of Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post covers, are on display at the Atwater Kent Museum of Philadelphia.

As best as I can determine, the museum never owned any original Norman Rockwell paintings. However, the almost limitless display of original magazine covers, calendars, story illustrations and advertisements would have made quite an impression on their own merit.

In addition to the original paper publications, other memorabilia were on display as well.

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.
