"Picturing Health" At Rockwell Museum

12:00AM / Thursday, January 25, 2007

Stockbridge - From Norman Rockwell's illustrations of a kindly country doctor consulting with his patients to contemporary artworks touting the benefits of good fat over bad, images of health and well-being are given a thorough examination in this insightful new exhibition.

"Picturing Health" features outstanding original oil paintings by Norman Rockwell from the Pfizer Collection. These paintings, considered to be among the finest examples of Rockwell's advertising commissions, explore the doctor/patient relationship, physical fitness, and health and healing.

The exhibition includes original works reflecting similar themes by 14 of today's most respected illustrators. Seen on the pages of "Healthy Living," "Men's Health," "Newsweek," "The New York Times," "The New Yorker," and others, these works present contemporary perspectives on many of the same health-related subjects that Norman Rockwell explored more than 50 years ago.

"Picturing Health: Norman Rockwell and the Art of Illustration" is being sponsored by Pfizer Inc. For over 158 years, Pfizer has been working to help people live longer, healthier lives.

The Norman Rockwell Museum is at 9 Glendale Road, Route 183 in Stockbridge. Additional information about the museum and its' exhibits may be acquired by calling 413-298-4100, or by visiting a www.nrm.org Internet web site.
