XOXO: With Love, Norman Rockwell
Explore the themes of love and courtship through 42 nostalgic Norman Rockwell prints, illustrated for The Saturday Evening Post. The Saturday Evening Post, the most successful mass circulation magazine in the United States, was published in Philadelphia from 1897 to 1969 by the Curtis Publishing Company. Between 1916 and 1963 Rockwell illustrated 322 Post covers. In 1998, Marshall and Donald Stoltz donated the complete collection of Rockwell’s covers to the Atwater Kent Museum of Philadelphia.
View selected covers under the themes of “Seasons of Love and Romance,” “The Dance,” “Hey Sailor,” “Head in the Clouds,” “Star Struck,” and more.
