Repository description (extant): The Norman Rockwell Museum Archives ('the Archive') are the largest and most comprehensive archival collection relating to the life and art of Norman Rockwell, and a repository for collections relating to the art of illustration, both historical and contemporary. Housed at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA ('the Museum'), and searchable online at www.nrm.org, the Archive comprises the cornerstone collection of the Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies (RCAVS). The first of its kind in the nation, this research institute promotes contextual scholarship relating to American illustration, and supports the Museum's mission to preserve and interpret this important aspect of American visual culture.
The Archive preserves and makes accessible collections relating to the life and art of legendary American illustrator, Norman Rockwell, as well as materials bringing to light the work of other noted illustrators, whose contributions reflect the evolution of this vibrant and ever-changing American art form.
