“Picturing Health: Norman Rockwell and the Art of Illustration” features 11original paintings by Normal Rockwell from the collection of Pfizer Inc, which are among the finest examples of the artist’s advertising imagery. Norman Rockwell’s paintings explore the doctor/patient relationship, health and healing across generations, and the importance of physical fitness.
In addition to the outstanding Rockwell canvases are featured 14 of today’s preeminent illustrators from the pages of Healthy Living, Men’s Health, Newsweek, The New York Times and The New Yorker. Their art work presents a contemporary perspective on many of the same health-related subjects explored nearly 50 years earlier by Rockwell.
