Are you in New York for Fashion Week? Chances are whether you are visiting or live in the area, you just might be looking for a way to escape from the madness. Take a trip down to the Brooklyn Museum, where the admission is a mere suggested donation of $10! (So you can still purchase that dress, handbag, shoes…) At the BMA, you’ll find an exhibition showcasing facets of the extraordinary work of Norman Rockwell. Entitled, “Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera,” the exhibit features the photography process that Rockwell used to bring his whimsical illustrations to life.
In “The Barbershop,” Rockwell was able to reference details that would only have been caught through the memory of a photograph. “There were details, accents of light, which I’d missed when I’d been able to make only quick sketches of a setting.”
“The Dugout,” above, was created by the process of multiple staged photographs. Extra photography was taken in a studio to fill in the rowdy crowd, and if you take an extra close peek at the top left corner, you’ll notice a cameo from Rockwell himself!
Whether you’re in NY or across the globe, we’d love to know – have you seen or heard of any extraordinary exhibitions going on currently?
i took art history but never studied norman rockwell– love these! i never knew he worked from photographs!
I love this!
His art is always so inspiring. that’s really cool and I didn’t know that about the photographs!!!
As an illustrator myself, I love Rockwell! He was a true master of the craft creating some of the most amazing illustrative work of the time.
I’m glad they still have many of the reference photos he used! I wish I still lived in PA so I could head up to see the show
