Few painters have created images as popular and as intertwined with American culture as Norman Rockwell. For decades, Rockwell produced magazine covers for the Saturday Evening Post â illustrations which are folksy, nostalgic and idealized versions of the county. And even if you donât know anything about Rockwell, thereâs a good chance youâd recognize his work. Those covers and other items go on display Sunday at the Birmingham Museum of Art. We sent WBHMâs Andrew Yeager there to get a preview.
