Norman Rockwell is one of the most consistently underrated American artists, from an historical perspective.

Compare the crowds that are drawn to an exhibition of his work to those that attend the pseudo-artistic freak-shows routinely bankrolled by noveau riche, Eurotrash pond scum like Charles Saatchi.

I can't think of more vivid illustration of the enormous chasm in cultural values between the elites and the masses.

In this, as in so many other observations of modern society, Tom Wolfe was correct in his analysis.
