Rockwell relatives diss book

Oka

Relatives of the late Norman Rockwell claim a new biography of the famed illustrator contains numerous inaccuracies and poses “phantom theories” about his sexual tendencies.

“American Mirror: The Life and Art of Norman Rockwell,” by Deborah Solomon, was published last month.

In a statement, relatives say they found at least 96 errors in the book. The family highlighted one passage describing Rockwell going to schools at recess and stopping boys on the street to ask them to pose for his illustrations, and that such behavior might be seen as problematic today.

The family disputes the author’s suggestions that he was lonely or chronically depressed.
