I’m on a self-imposed posting holiday until Friday. I will be spending time with family and friends.
The painting I’ve presented here is by Norman Rockwell and was inspired along with three other paintings by Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Four Freedom’s speech.
The four paintings (you can see them here) were published in the Saturday Evening Post on February 20th, February 27th, March 6th, and March 13th in 1943.
The paintings raised over $130,000,000 in war bond sales when they toured around the country by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
