- Illustrations in classic books (i.e. Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer)
- Portraits for celebrities and domestic/foreign presidents (i.e. Judy Garland and Kennedy)
- Paintings for a series in Look Magazine addressing the problem of racism (i.e. The Problem We All Live With)
The Norman Rockwell Making Music Plate is a wonderful piece of memorabilia. Although it is not in its original packaging, it has never been displayed and is therefore in mint condition. This special plate makes an excellent gift for collectors.
