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 Carrére 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.
