Inspired by Franklin Delano Roosevelts 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 Rockwells efforts by commissioning four themed essays to accompany the prints. The Posts 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 Rockwells most compelling work to date.
