Print journalists and art critics have churned out reams of features and essays about the Smithsonian exhibition "Telling Stories: Norman Rockwell from the Collections of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg." But the TV coverage, especially on 'CBS Sunday Morning,' has paid more attention to the title, drawing direct connections between Rockwell and his two renowned collectors. All three are artists who've brought uncompromising craftsmanship and narrative prowess to mainstream forms like slick magazine illustration and pop moviemaking. Lucas said that "Shadow Artist" (above, 1920) reminds him that early movie artists too built illusions out of light, shadow, and physical objects. Spielberg said that he looks at "High Dive" (below, 1947) before he starts any new movie, because its young hero's high anxiety and fright mirror his own. But the painting also mirrors Spielberg's delight in dramatic perspectives and his knack for vividly externalizing childhood states of mind.
