Works from the Norman Rockwell Museum Head to Rome

In May of 1914, a young Norman Rockwell entered artwork in his first exhibition: a group show at the New Rochelle Public Library in New Rochelle, New York. He was 20 years old.

One hundred years later, a traveling exhibition of some of Rockwell’s most iconic original works is making its European debut. Organized by Norman Rockwell Museum, "American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell" will be on view at the Fondazione Roma-Arte-Musei in Rome, Italy through February 8, 2015. "American Chronicles" has been traveling across America for seven years, garnering record audiences wherever it has opened; Rome is its only trans-Atlantic venue.

“This year, Norman Rockwell Museum celebrates its 45th anniversary, and our outreach has never been greater as we strive to meet the public demand for Rockwell’s work,” says Museum Director/CEO Laurie Norton Moffatt, who spoke to members of the press this morning at the Fondazione’s media preview.
