Poignant Humorists: An Exhibit of Rockwell Prints Based on Twain Classics

February 3-28, 2014  |  Reading Room, Third Floor

Poignant Humorists: An Exhibit of Rockwell Prints Based on Twain Classics

Come relive the mythical carefree days of childhood through Norman Rockwell’s illustrations of Mark Twain’s classics The Adventures of Tom Sawyerand The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, kindly donated to the University of Colorado by Dr. and Mrs. David R. Gillingham (M.D. – 1963) in memory of Dr. Robert W. Hendee (M.D. – 1961). 

Poignant Humorists: Mark Twain and Norman Rockwell
Lecture by Dr. Pamela Laird, Chair of CU Denver's History Department: 

To celebrate this generous gift, the Health Sciences Library hosted a lecture on February 13th with Dr. Pamela Laird, wherein she examined these two geniuses.

What a great combination! Norman Rockwell illustrating Mark Twain’s boy legends—Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Fun, mischief, danger, and good intentions that sometimes go awry. . . .

Yet, the countless pleasures and insights that these two American humorists have brought us for generations belie the tensions that too often lay behind their pictures and words. Both Twain and Rockwell struggled with defining their personal goals and professional identities in ways that their art sometimes
reveals and sometimes hides.

Dr. Pamela Laird, Professor and Chair of CU Denver’s History Department, will explore both the pleasure and the poignancy that this wonderful print collection brings to us from two of America’s most beloved storytellers.
