with a list of artists that use it.
What do you think about the following and can you add to it? Anywhere to go
that you can suggest for more commentary on the subject?

Magritte, Folon, Ronald Searle, Wegman< Sandy Skoglund, Haring

Norman Rockwell, American Illustrator. Talk about visual humor! He captured
the essence of a time in history, literal moments in time and sometimes
entire stories can be told from singular illustrations. Total realistic
drawing lessons abound. Almost "photographic" qualities for history
integration. His work is fun to explore with elementary. I am behind with
my mail. Sorry if this is old, or a repeat.
