Norman Rockwell and Friends: American Illustrations from the Mort Künstler Collection features masters from the Golden Age of American Illustration: Edwin Austin Abbey, Howard Chandler Christy, Dean Cornwell, Charles Dana Gibson, Winslow Homer, J.C. Leyendecker, Maxfield Parrish, Howard Pyle, Norman Rockwell, and N.C. Wyeth, among others. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, these artists contributed countless illustrations to the journals and books that were avidly read by an increasingly literate American public, assuming a cultural significance equivalent to that of television and digital technology today. Depicting sentimental themes or dramatic adventures, the country’s illustrators envisioned the aspirations of the nation and gave visual expression to the American character.

Norman Rockwell and Friends is sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Charles F. Dolan, the Rapaport Shallat Foundation, The Steven A. Klar Foundation, Frank Lourenso & Gary Stevens - Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, and The Henry Luce Foundation Directors' Discretionary Grants Program at the request of Thomas L. Pulling.

Mort Künstler: The New Nation traces the story of the birth of our country, from settlement through the Revolutionary War, to the establishment of our democracy and the inauguration of George Washington as the nation’s first president. Known as America’s Civil War painter, Mort Künstler has devoted his career to the entire swath of American history. Characterized by factual accuracy and emotional depth, Künstler’s paintings vividly bring to life scenes from our iconic past. The paintings in The New Nation are the artist’s most recent work, giving visual expression to the dramatic story of America’s founding and the noble character of the American people.

Synapses: Threads for Thought presents over two dozen works from the Museum’s collection as a meandering thread of diverse connections.  Paintings, prints, and photographs executed in a range of styles and with varying subjects are arranged so that each work links to those that precede and follow it, but in different ways.  The revealed associations in concept and formal concerns enlarge the viewer’s interpretation and highlight the interconnectedness of visual experience.   With works ranging from a late-16th century Annunciation and George Grosz’s Eclipse of the Sun to abstractions by Arthur Dove and photographs by Larry Fink, this exhibition embraces the breadth of the Museum’s collection.
