Schiller was a passionate and consummate scholar of illustration art, having devoted a lifetime of study to the genre. She joined Norman Rockwell Museum in 2009 from the Delaware Art Museum, and for five years built the foundational work of the Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies, establishing a firm base of scholarship around the Museum’s central mission. She retired from her position as Rockwell Center Curator in August 2014 to devote more time to be with her husband, Lewis Schiller, and her own research.
A friend to countless collectors and fans in the world of illustration art, Ms. Schiller responded to hundreds of inquiries from art collectors, academics, staff, and the general public each year—an invaluable resource for all.
Norman Rockwell Museum sends our condolences to Ms. Schiller’s friends and family, and appreciation for all her valuable work with our institution.
