rockwell painted the american dream — better than anyone. (steven spielberg)

How my head hurt after a discussion of Dave Hickey's Romancing the Looky-Loos and Shining Hours/Forgiving Rhyme from Air Guitar in a philosophy of art history class. My only comfort was that he defended Norman Rockwell.

And the hours I spent looking through my mom's Norman Rockwell coffee table book. Literally hours, every painting is so perfectly detailed. I probably could have put twenty more images on this post. Love his work.
