Sample #1.- Book: With
permission of David Gallagher, Sp. 2013.

Buechner, Thomas S.
Norman Rockwell A Sixty Year Retrospective
. New York: Harry N.

Abrams, Incorporated,
1972. Print.

The book illustrates
Rockwell’s work in chronological order in twenty-year increments. It includes a
brief autobiography related to his artistic career, including his schooling and
how he became an artist. Over 150 of his paintings are illustrated in the book,
including an overview on how he developed his work and the story behind selected
paintings. The book is valuable to someone looking to research Rockwell’s
career, as it is a well-organized overview in a chronological timeline. A
limitation includes the fact that not all of Rockwell’s work is explained and
is limited to what the author chooses.

2. One entry must be
an article from a professional journal that was obtained from a database (See
Neumann library). – Notice that the URL is not required for a database entry.
However, a URL for an approved Web site is required in the Annotated Bibliography.

Sample #2.- Database
With permission of David Gallagher, Sp. 2013.

Greenhill, Jennifer A.
“The View from Outside: Rockwell and Race in 1950.” American Art 21.2

(Summer 2007): 70-95. Ebsco
. Web. 28 Feb. 2013.

The article provides a
background of the paintings that Norman Rockwell created focusing on the
epidemic America had with the color of race. Nearly two-dozen examples of his
artwork are provided in the article. It describes how racism existed in America
and how Rockwell depicted it in his work throughout his career. It chronicles
racism in America and when, or how, Rockwell’s work connected to it. A fan of
Norman Rockwell and one who has an interest in racism would find this source
valuable. This is true since the author provides specific examples how Rockwell
blended art with the controversial topic of racism in America. A limitation of
the article is that it does not analyze all of the work that Rockwell created
based on the Civil Rights Movement.
