National Museum of American Illustration is a nonprofit, independent,
educational and aesthetic organization. It is located in Newport, RI,
on Bellevue Avenue at Vernon Court (1898), a Carreré and Hastings
designed Beaux-Arts adaptation of an 18th century French chateau. It is
the first national museum devoted exclusively to American illustration
art. Illustration consists of original artwork created to be reproduced
in books, magazines, newspapers, and advertisements. 'Golden Age'
paintings by such luminaries as Norman Rockwell, Maxfield Parrish, NC
Wyeth, JC Leyendecker, and 75 others are displayed in 'Gilded Age'
architecture, creating a unique union of architecture and art - a
national treasure. The Museum is administered by the American
Civilization Foundation, a nonprofit organization with the goal to
present the best possible venue for appreciating the greatest
collection of illustration art - the most American of American art.
