|Norman Rockwell Painting - Shuffleton's Barbershop - 1950|
I just read Norman Rockwell's granddaughter's accounts of the very fraudulent, dishonest account of Rockwell's life in a supposed "biography" by Deborah Solomon.
The author of the book fabricates material in a dishonest attempt to portray Rockwell as not only a homosexual but as also as having pedophilic tendencies.
You can read both of her protests about the book on The Huffington Post.

Autopsy of a Fraud: Update on Deborah Solomon’s Disastrous Norman Rockwell Bio
Acclaimed artist James Gurney also wrote about the controversy on his blog and gives a link to a petition you can sign to have this book removed from the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts (who have been promoting and selling this awful book) and I've included the direct links below.
When you read Rockwell's granddaughter's accounts on The Huffington Post your blood will boil at the absolute disregard the author has for the truth—not to mention that her publisher and the media are complicit in promoting this book.
If you would like to join me in signing the petition just follow either link.
You can also help by sharing it with your family and friends or posting it as I have done.
Here are the petition links:
