How prolific the artist was, and far from a magazine cover hack, his paintings are full of meticulous detail that can only be appreciated up close. Certainly worth a stop if you are in the area, his talent and work ethic will impress anyone.

We visited the Norman Rockwell Museum for the first time and were so impressed how timely his art still remains today. Beautifully presented. Loved that they moved his studio barn to this newer location. Great gift shop. Friendly staff.
