A prolific illustrator who has worked on a broad spectrum of assignments for more than 60 years, what has made Mort Kunstler such a distinguished and notable artist is his ability to capture dynamism and action in his work, while delivering particular a historical narrative in each piece. In November, a retrospective of Kunstler's work opened at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, featuring illustrations from a wide-range of assignments from True, Argosy, Saturday Evening Post, Outdoor Life, American Weekly, and Men's Story, in addition to his recent historical paintings of the Civil War. "Morth Kunstler: The Art of Adventure" will be exhibited at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge through March 8. (413) 931-2264; Nrm.org.
