This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Famous Americans – Norman Rockwell. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Talented at a young age, Norman Rockwell received his first commission from painting at age 17. By 22 years old, Rockwell, was newly married to his first wife, Irene O'Connor and had painted his first cover for The Saturday Evening Post—the beginning of a 47-year relationship with the iconic American magazine. In all, Rockwell painted 321 covers for the Post.
He also worked for other magazines, including Look, which in 1969 featured a Rockwell cover depicting the imprint of Neil Armstrong's left foot on the surface of the moon after the successful moon landing. In 1920, the Boy Scouts of America featured a Rockwell painting in its calendar. Rockwell continued to paint for the Boy Scouts for the rest of his life.
He created World War II posters and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977. His focus changed in later years as he turned more of his attention to the social issues facing the country. Much of the work centered on themes concerning poverty, race and the Vietnam War. Rockwell's Americana images were loved by the public. He died on November 8, 1978.
