95 errors in Rockwell biography, family claims
“American Mirror: The Life and Art of Norman Rockwell,” by Deborah Solomon, was published in November.
In a statement released by the Norman Rockwell Family Agency, relatives said they found at least 96 factual errors in the book.
Messages left for Solomon through her publisher were not immediately returned.
The family highlighted one reference in the book in which the author describes Rockwell going to schools at recess, and stopping boys on the street.
The family disputes the author’s suggestions that he was lonely or chronically depressed.
Rockwell illustrated more than 300 covers for the Saturday Evening Post. He died in 1978.
He lived in Stockbridge.
