This summer, the Norman Rockwell Museum is presenting the first comprehensive exhibition to look at the work of master illustrators Maxfield Parrish, N.C. Wyeth, and Norman Rockwell in relation to the history of Western art.

With more than 60 works by 25 American and European painters, along with more than 300 digital representations of some 50 other artists, "Keepers of the Flame: Parrish, Wyeth, Rockwell, and the Narrative Tradition" reveals the lineage connecting American illustration to some 500 years of European painting through the long line of teachers who have passed along their wisdom, knowledge, and techniques to generations of creators.

Organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum, the exhibition is on view through October 28. It is curated by Dennis Nolan, an award-winning artist and professor of illustration at Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford who joins us along with Norman Rockwell Museum Chief Curator Stephanie Plunkett.
