Rockwell and Hargens

Charles W. Hargens - Mount Rushmore with the tribe of Native AmericansIf my favourite American illustrator Norman Rockwell were still alive, he would be well chuffed to know that the third US exhibition to feature his art this year will open in two days time at the James A. Michener Art Museum's Della Penna Gallery in New Hope, Pennsylvania. Norman Rockwell in the 1940s: A View of the American Homefront will run alongside Charles Hargens: American Illustrator until 10 February 2008. Both artists created covers for The Saturday Evening Post and for Boy's Life, so it's fitting that these exhibitions stand side-by-side. Hargens died 10 years ago.
