Scottsdale’s American Fine Art presents a collection by two of America’s most iconic and beloved artists, Norman Rockwell and Andrew Wyeth.

Mr. Wyeth once simplified his vision by declaring “I want to show Americans what America is like.”

That is precisely what this collection does.

Mr. Wyeth and Mr. Rockwell have helped to shape how Americans view themselves, their present, their history, and their aspirations, stated a press release.

Arranged by artist, the exhibition will offer insights into the work of these giants of American art.

Reflections of America: Andrew Wyeth and Norman Rockwell will illuminate such quintessentially American themes as patriotism and the meaning of America; family; the significance of place; and the role of storytelling.

American patriotism is expressed in Rockwell’s America Marches Ahead and Andrew Wyeth’s Young America. The theme of family can be seen in Mr. Rockwell’s Freedom from Want and Saying Grace, as well as Mr. Wyeth’s portrait of his son.

Many of the art works in the exhibit are available for purchase.

American Fine Art’s International Art Consultants are on hand to help collectors choose the piece that is best for their collection. The exhibit will include original drawings, collotypes, lithographs, and more, the release stated.

The unique artistic legacies of Mr. Rockwell and Mr. Wyeth offer personal chronicles of 20th-century life and aspirations that has both reflected and profoundly influenced American perceptions and ideals.

This exhibit will be on view through Dec. 31 at American Fine Art, 3908 N. Scottsdale Road.

American Fine Art has been a destination in Old Town Scottsdale’s Arts District for decades as well as an industry leading fine art gallery and international publisher.
