Norman Rockwell’s America was not all white. As early as 1936, Rockwell
was portraying people of color with empathy and a dignity often denied
them at the time. And he created these portraits from live models.
in Plain Sight: The Other People in Norman Rockwell’s America unfolds,
for the first time, the stories of the Asian, African, and Native
Americans who modeled for Norman Rockwell. These people of color, though
often hidden in plain sight, are present throughout Rockwell’s more
than 4000 illustrations. People like the John Lane family, Navajos
poignantly depicted in the virtually unknown Norman Rockwell painting,
“Glen Canyon Dam.” People like Isaac Crawford, a ten year old
African-American Boy Scout who helped Norman Rockwell finally integrate
the Boy Scout calendar.
In this engrossing and often humorous
narrative, Jane Allen Petrick explores what motivated Norman Rockwell to
slip people of color “into the picture” in the first place. And in so
doing, she persuasively documents the famous illustrator’s deep
commitment to and pointed portrayals of ethnic tolerance, portrayals
that up to now have been, as Norman Rockwell biographer Laura Claridge
so clearly put it, “bizarrely neglected”.
Hidden in Plain Sight:
The Other People in Norman Rockwell’s America is an eye opener for
everyone who loves Norman Rockwell, everyone who hates Norman Rockwell
and for all those people in between who never thought much about Norman
Rockwell because they believed Norman Rockwell never thought much about
them. This book will expand the way you think about Norman Rockwell. And
it will deepen the way you think about Norman Rockwell's America.
