Yes. it can be hard for me to narrow focus as abstract is such a useful concept for me. I could write a long page about “abstract” without having to think about it first. Also, I take away the “mediocre” remark: I was thinking of his copycats (there were many). Rockwell’s own usually evoked a very strong “nostalgia” feeling in Americans as it represents a look-of-America that once was that isn’t so different from today but it is a little different. He evoked it back then and it continues to. Quite astute guy to be able to capture that. But yes, it’s looked down on as a style as it’s “for the masses”.
