As with many successful artists, Rockwell was an undoubted perfectionist which perhaps was one of his secrets of success.
However it did impede some of his early career where professional deadlines would be more of an issue for an artist who was just starting to get a name for himself.
Some would grow frustrated by his unability to produce work quickly and as such he was always going to be more suited to the latter stages of his career where he could call the shots and have entire control over artistic direction and timeframes for delivery.
Rockwell's actual first published magazine cover was entitled Scout at Ship's Wheel and appeared in Boys' Life, September 1913.
At that point, few could have realised the achievements that the artist was later to reach through a varied and expansive career of art.
To have his own Norman Rockwell Museum today underlines the claim that he is one of the most important 20th century American artists.
The career of Rockwell was to total some 4,000 by it's end with is an achievement in itself.
Typically he was an artist who some art critics loved whilst others would refer to him rudely as just an illustrator and no more.
Rockwell was strong willed enough not to take an awful lot of notice of any of it and he would be pleased to see how the public continue to enjoy his work even today.
Norman Rockwell was so respected that he received commissions for portraits of four American presidents, namely Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon which is a huge honour for any patriotic American artist.
He also painted many other celebrities as well including Judy Garland.
These works, however significant in his career, are still overshadowed by more popular works in the eyes of the public.
