Description
Illuminates both the historic context in which FDR articulated the Four Freedoms -- Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear -- and the role of Rockwell's paintings in bringing them to life for millions of people, rallying the public behind the War effort and changing the tenor of the times. In telling the story of how Rockwell's works were transformed from a series of paintings into a national movement, the exhibition also demonstrates the power of illustration to communicate ideas and inspire change. Also includes numerous other examples of painting, illustration, and more, by both Rockwell and a broad range of his contemporaries, from J.C. Leyendecker and Mead Schaeffer, to Ben Shahn, Dorothea Lange, and Gordon Parks, among others.
