Mac Conner

If McCauley "Mac" Conner's painting We Won't Be Any Trouble reminds you of the work of Norman Rockwell, it's because Rockwell was one of Conner's artistic heroes. He admired Rockwell's sense of humour. In the 1940s and 1960s Conner's outstanding work in advertising and editorial illustrations for major magazines helped shape the image of postwar America. Mac Conner: A New York Life at the House of Illustration features over 70 original works by Conner. Admission costs £7 for adults, £5 for silver surfers (CLICK). Conner is now 100 years old. In the YouTube video below, he reflects on his life and art with many illustrations shown.
