Art critic and historian Deborah Silverman has written widely acclaimed lives of Jackson Pollock and Joseph Cornell, but it's been more than a decade and a half since her last book. This long-awaited biography tackles a most American subject. For many of us, Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) remains a very competent magazine illustrator of sentimental, stereotypical scenes. The carefully researched and perceptive American Mirror paints him as a person and artist far more complex, tormented, and gifted than most readers suppose. A major biography of an enigmatic icon; editor's recommendation.
