A new exhibit of his paintings, currently on display at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, highlights the themes and the technical skill that marked his career. The painter’s son Peter, and one of the show’s curators both join Diane for a discussion of Norman Rockwell’s life and artistic legacy.

Guests
