It’s always refreshing and exciting to see the art work of these “old masters” be reinvigorated and take on a new lease of life in contemporary media be it in films, advertising or design.

You can explore more illustrations by Norman Rockwell in his art book 332 Magazine Covers and J.C Leyendecker.
