ABOUT THE ARTIST

Named the official artist of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 2008, Rockwell started his artistic journey at the age of 14. He found early success at 16 when he was commissioned to draw four Christmas cards. As a professional illustrator he worked on thousands of paintings and drawings, with 323 of his paintings appearing on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. His artistic legacy showcases some of his deepest concerns and interests in civil rights, America's war on poverty, and the exploration in space.

ABOUT THE PAINTING

When Norman Rockwell moved to Stockbridge in 1953, he worked in a studio located in the center of town, above the Stockbridge Shop. He put a Christmas tree in a window to mark the space where he used to work before moving to the South Street. Step back in time as you watch this video of Rockwell at work, and see how Stockbridge's Main Street remains virtually unchanged.

Norman Rockwell's painting Home for Christmas (Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas) has come to symbolize Christmas in America, just as Rockwell intended in 1967. Rockwell wanted the editors at McCall's to identify it as Stockbridge in the text, and they did. Norman Rockwell takes you on a Christmas Eve walk along Stockbridge's Main Street, past the public library, the antiques and gift shops, the old town office, and by the rambling Victorian hotel, beyond which is Rockwell's own studio. McCall's reached out to its national audience by adding, "Wherever you happen to hail from-city, suburb, farm or ranch-we hope you will have, for a moment, the feeling of coming home for Christmas."
