Norman Rockwell: great American artist or mere illustrator?

A story teller with a brush! A celebrated and prolific twentieth century painter and illustrator whose work has probably been seen by a larger audience than any other artist in History! In America his work enjoys broad popular appeal, where Rockwell is most famous for the cover illustrations he created for The Saturday Evening Post. Today his work sells for millions of dollars. 

The lecturer on this occasion is John Ericson


Formerly a lecturer at the University of Bath where he was Director of Studies in the School of Education with responsibility for the professional development of teachers. He has worked extensively overseas as an educational consultant and this has given him the opportunity to give lectures and presentations at conferences all over the world.

Over the last decade he has been a popular speaker on the Arts Society circuit in the UK and Europe as well as a frequent visitor to the societies in Australia and New Zealand.


This lecture will be given in the Matthews Hall at 1045 a.m. on Thursday December 8th 2022
