SAN FRANCISCO (January 31, 2011)—Art.com, the world’s leading online specialty provider of wall art, in collaboration with The Saturday Evening Post, today announced the launch of its new Saturday Evening Post wall art collection. This collection features premium quality reproductions of hundreds of classic cover illustrations from 20th century American painter and illustrator Norman Rockwell that capture the spirit, look and feel of a historic era of American history.
"Art.com remains dedicated to helping customers discover and embrace different art genres, and the iconic Americana art period is perfectly embodied in our new Saturday Evening Post wall art collection," said Geoffroy Martin, CEO of Art.com Inc. "By partnering with a classic publishing icon and a legendary artist, we’re able to showcase an acclaimed collection of distinct American art. Norman Rockwell left a timeless legacy of nostalgic illustrations of the rural American family that still resonates with today’s modern families."
Art.com offers the most comprehensive collection of wall art from The Saturday Evening Post, featuring Norman Rockwell, with more than 300 images. Rockwell, known as America’s favorite artist, is most famous for the cover illustrations of simple, everyday life scenarios he created for The Saturday Evening Post for more than 40 years.
"We are honored to collaborate with art.com on this new collection celebrating classic American art from a bygone era," said Joan Servaas, President of The Saturday Evening Post Society. "Our long history and adoration of Norman Rockwell is reflected in these memorable images that have been reproduced into beautiful works of art, which will help the legacy of The Saturday Evening Post’s most beloved artist live on with younger generations."
The collection’s affordable and customizable print and framing options allow customers to decorate their home with artwork from a celebrated American icon.
