BOOK RELEASE EVENT FOR "THE UNKNOWN ROCKWELL" AT THE NORMAN ROCKWELL MUSEUM IN STOCKBRIDGE, MA
October 10, 2009 (Burlington, Vermont) – America’s love affair with Norman Rockwell continues, as evidenced by the 15-page spread in Vanity Fair’s November issue and the Smithsonian Institute’s recent announcement of a major exhibition from the private Rockwell art collections of none other than the directorial dynamic duo, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas – who both credit Norman Rockwell as their inspiration for filmmaking. The exhibition is underwritten by Booz Allen, because “Rockwell’s themes of love of country, personal honor, and the value of family and friendship align well with Booz Allen Hamilton’s mission and values.”
At a time in our country when these themes are even more crucial, more relevant, comes a book that sheds intimate insights into the man who inspired Rockwell who, in turn, inspired the world: James “Buddy” Edgerton. For the first time ever, meet the man who inspired Norman Rockwell like no one else - the famous face of the Boy Scout seen by millions! - and hear of the discovery of a Rockwell portrait, a one-of-a-kind illustration the art world and public has never known existed!
The Unknown Rockwell: A Portrait Of Two American Families, with a Foreword by media legend Dick Clark, launched from the Norman Rockwell Museum on Thursday, October 8, 2009, amid an overflowing gallery of excited guests and more than twenty-five former Vermont Rockwell models. Vermont Governor Jim Douglas and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick honored Edgerton and co-author Nan O’Brien.
Two of Norman Rockwell’s sons, Jarvis and Tom, attended the event. In this rare public appearance, Jarvis shared his personal thoughts on their lives together with the Edgertons. At the book launch, the authors revealed the story of a previously unknown Rockwell portrait that has been in Edgerton’s family for almost sixty years - a bereavement gift from Rockwell himself, and the only Rockwell work known to be painted from memory. The portrait was unveiled publicly for the first time and is now on loan to the Norman Rockwell Museum.
"Like millions of Americans, I grew up loving the works of Norman Rockwell. He captured the simple and ordinary in our American way of life. In his paintings, he was able to touch us all with some sort of emotion. The Unknown Rockwell: A Portrait of Two Families" will create for you a wonderful warm feeling. It’s intimate and loaded with moments we can all treasure." Dick Clark, (American Bandstand Media Legend)
“Buddy Edgerton's memoir offers a compelling glimpse of Norman Rockwell’s Arlington…a warm reflection on the lives and times of beloved neighbors and friends who were immortalized in Rockwell’s art. We are honored to host the launch of Buddy Edgerton's personal narrative, and to share it with what will surely be an appreciative public."
Stephanie Plunkett, Deputy Director and Chief Curator of Norman Rockwell Museum.
