Norman Rockwell For Crest
Norman Rockwell did the artwork for many, many advertisements in his prolific career, in addition to all of his magazine covers and everything else. I read an article in the newspaper a while back about a new exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. which features Rockwell artwork from the collections of Stephen Spielberg and George Lucas. I can't even begin to tell you how much I would love to see that exhibit!
Nothing quite as fabulous as all of that (original paintings!) today, I'm afraid - simply a few of his advertisements for Crest Toothpaste (found in my vintage magazines), which are pretty darned special in themselves, I must say!
Norman Rockwell is, and always will be, one of my favorite artists - and one of the greatest ones who ever lived.
I'm a HUGE fan.
