Spanning much of the last century, Norman Rockwell’s artistry vividly portrayed American life and values. His beloved illustrations depict a mosaic of daily experiences. “Studio Sessions” aims to showcase these moments specifically, looking into the preliminary sketches, photography sessions, and studies that led to each masterpiece. Moreover, each NFT purchase comes with a limited-edition museum-quality print.
The director of the Rockwell Museum, Norton Moffatt, conveyed the museum’s excitement, stating, “Our move into digital art editions marks a pivotal point in our pledge to uphold and honor Norman Rockwell’s legacy. It’s a significant step in both art and culture.”
