Inspired by Franklin Delano Roosevelt's 1941speech titled, "The Four Freedoms," Norman Rockwell expressed the strength of this message by creating his own series of paintings. Rockwell spent months perfecting each of the four masterpieces which would be published in 1943: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Worship, Freedom from Want and Freedom from Fear. The Saturday Evening Post supported Rockwell's efforts by commissioning four themed essays to accompany the prints. The Post's publication generated such a positive response during the turmoil of WWII that the U.S. Treasury Department launched The Four Freedoms War Bond Show, an exhibition tour dedicated to these paintings. "The Four Freedoms" series still represents some of Norman Rockwell's most compelling work to date.

- The Print
- The Artist
Norman Rockwell (1894 – 1978), one of America’s most beloved artists, left a timeless legacy of nostalgic, endearing, whimsical paintings that appealingly and insightfully depict simple, and often idyllic, scenes from daily life. After illustrating a series of children’s books at age 16, Rockwell was hired to be the art director of “Boys’ Life,” the official publication of the Boy Scouts of America. Six years later, he sold his first cover to the most prestigious magazine of the era, the “Saturday Evening Post.” Over the next 47 years, he created 321 covers for the “Post,” which became synonymous with his name. He later worked for “Look” magazine, addressing more serious issues of civil rights, poverty and space exploration.
