I made a terrific discovery last week, The National Museum of American Illustration, while vacationing with my family in Rhode Island. Illustration is my favorite art form, so I clearly hit pay dirt finding this incredible gem housing art by such legends as Norman Rockwell, JC Leyendecker, and many more. In fact, if you wish to see the largest collection of Maxfield Parrish’s work, this is THE place to go!
The National Museum of American Illustration, located in Newport, Rhode Island, is a nonprofit independent, educational, and aesthetic organization.
Located on Bellevue Avenue at Vernon Court (1898), a Beaux-Arts adaptation of an early 18th century French chateau, it is the first national museum devoted exclusively to American illustration. ‘Golden Age’ paintings by such luminaries as Norman Rockwell, JC Leyendecker, Maxfield Parrish, NC Wyeth, and 80 others are displayed in ‘Gilded Age’ architecture setting, creating a unique union of art and architecture. This stunning, unique combination is considered a national treasure.The Museum is administered by the American Civilization Foundation, a nonprofit organization with the goal to present the best possible venue for appreciating the greatest collection of illustration art; the most American of American art.
