Rockwell’s work was dismissed by serious art critics in his lifetime, and many of his works appear overly sweet in the opinion of modern critics. In his later years, however, Rockwell began receiving more attention as a painter when he chose more serious subjects such as the series on racism for Look magazine. You could also look at a recent auction where the Norman Rockwell painting entitled “Saying Grace” sold for $46 million in an auction at Sotheby’s – a record price for a single work by an American painter at the time.

Grave Location Description
As you make your your way into the very-hard-to-find entrance off Main Street (on your right just past the historic district) veer to the left towards the white cemetery administration building and white maintenance shed. Continue driving down that gravel road towards the cemetery boundary and cow pasture. On your left, second family plot in, nestled in the tall shrubs is the final resting place of Norman Rockwell.
