Norman Rockwell, ’Coinoisseur’ 1962 , Jackson Pollock:
The third painting is by illustrator Norman Rockwell (b 1894 – 1978 New York USA) ’Coinoisseur’ 1962 – a tribute to Abstract Expressionist Jackson Pollock (b. 1912 – 1966 USA). Whilst the painting is sometimes interpreted as a compliment to Pollock – it is also interesting to note the comparison between Rockwell’s illustrative art and the new Modern art of Pollock who was big news in the art scene of 1962.

Wallace’s ‘Big Fish’, Broadway:
“Big Fish” is making a new splash — on Broadway.
Fifteen years ago, Daniel Wallace published his first novel, “Big Fish,” and 10 years ago, the Tim Burton version of the movie by the same title came out. This month the musical, also “Big Fish,” premiered on Broadway.
“I started writing about my father, stories that are drawn from the man my father was, and I mixed it up with the other thing that I was interested in, which is Greek myths,” Wallace said.
Wallace is currently a UNC professor and the director of the creative writing program, and he has written several books since “Big Fish.”
Like the movie and the novel, the musical tells the story of Edward Bloom, a man from a small town in Alabama with a knack for storytelling. The story is one of reconciliation between the dying father, Edward, and his son, Will.
Wallace said the same people who worked on and wrote the musical also worked on and wrote the movie.
“I thought it was a thing that would never, ever happen, so I never took it seriously,” Wallace said.
“The fact that it happened still, it’s stunning to me.”
