An iconic figure in the entertainment world, Norman Lear was a pioneer in American television. His groundbreaking television programs, including Good Times, The Jeffersons, Maude, and All in the Family, revolutionized the medium and introduced modern realities into American living rooms.

Lear and his wife Lyn Davis Lear worked together to build an outstanding art collection that reflected their dedication to exposing the real face of current culture. Their collection will go up for auction at Christie’s in New York in May as part of the headline week for 20th and 21st century art.

Crystal, Kenya Barris, Shonda Rhimes, Ted Sarandos, Reginald Hudlin, Phil Rosenthal, and other friends, coworkers, and mentees consider Lear’s contributions to American entertainment and the lasting legacy of his work.

They recall Lear as an innovator, a source of inspiration, and a close friend who contributed inclusion and honesty to the cinema. Not only were his concerts funny, but they also addressed serious issues head-on and never wavered.

In the entertainment business, Lear is still highly regarded. Many people credit him with serving as a silent mentor for creators of shows that depict modern life. His art collection and activism continue to inspire future generations, thus his impact goes beyond television.

“All of television could be separated into two parts: BN and AN, Before Norman and After Norman,” as Phil Rosenthal put it.

Generations to follow will be inspired and influenced by Lear’s legacy, which has had an incalculable impact on American entertainment.
