From "The Saturday Evening Post" to "Kellogg's Corn Flakes" - If ever there was one American artist whose work completely epitomized the sentimental and idealistic innocence of family values as they were perceived in yesterday's America, then that artist would have to be, none other than, Norman Rockwell.

As an artist/illustrator - Throughout his 5-decade career, Rockwell produced more than 4000 works. Almost right from the start his paintings and their subject matter struck a nostalgic chord with the American public and, as a result, his popularity soared all across that nation (and, even beyond).

"American Mirror" is a well-researched pictorial-biography by Deborah Solomon. It delivers a professional, in-depth look at Norman Rockwell, his life, and his paintings.

*Note* - In 1978 - Norman Rockwell (at the age of 84) died from "natural" causes.

The NY Times review by Garrison Keillor is right on the mark.
