"Norman Rockwell photos"


Punta Gorda, US
          

I just spent a week in the Berkshire Hills. I love the scenery and culture of the area. They have some nice museums including the Clarke, MasMOCA (contemporary art) and the Norman Rockwell Museum.

I've always enjoyed Rockwell's work and learned at a visit to the museum that he would set up photographic scenes using neighbors and other local residents as models and he would then base his paintings and drawings on those photographs. His photographs were mostly done in black and white because he didn't want to be influenced by the actual colors in the scenes.

So, what I was thinking about is whether his drawings and paintings were art and if so, were the photos that they were based on also art?

Some of his drawings and the photos that he based them on can be found at http://pdnphotooftheday.com/2009/12/2778

What do you think?

Agree with Dave, yes and yes.

There's also Chesterwood, home and studio of Daniel Chester French, Sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial statue of Lincoln and Herman Melville's home in the same general area.

Arrowhead, Herman Melville's home is on my list of places to explore next time I'm up there. I'll have to add Chesterwood to that list.
