Amazing name, amazing art. Very recognizable style and a true reflection of American culture. 

In his own words: 'Without thinking too much about it in specific terms, I was showing the America I knew and observed to others who might not have noticed.' And we all know sports have a big place in American culture. 

 

In his life he made more than 4000 works, one of the most succesfull commercial artists of his time. Norman made a lot of illustrations featuring popular sports as shown here on the left. 

 

Go to the website of his own museum to see more of his work (www.nrm.org), or even better, go visit it for real in Stockbridge, 

Massachusetts!
