Norman Rockwell was an American painter and illustrator from the 1910s to the 1970s. Rockwell is most famous for the cover illustrations of everyday life he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine over nearly five decades. Among the best-known of Rockwell's works are the Willie Gillis series, Rosie the Riveter, Saying Grace, and the Four Freedoms series. He is also noted for his 64-year relationship with the Boy Scouts of America. Rockwell's work was dismissed by serious art critics in his lifetime, and many of his works appear overly sweet in the opinion of modern critics. In his later years, however, Rockwell began receiving more attention as a painter when he chose more serious subjects such as the series on racism for Look magazine. One example of this more serious work is The Problem We All Live With, which dealt with the issue of school racial integration. He passed away in 1978 at the age of 84.
