Product Description

Details

Available for pre-order, ships May 29, 2018.

A brand new landmark volume placing Norman Rockwell's Four Freedoms in their historical and artistic context.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt closed his 1941 State of the Union address with a vision of a world founded upon four human values: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear. By 1943, America had entered World War II, and inspired to do his part, Norman Rockwell painted a series of four paintings based on these Freedoms.

Rockwell's innately American interpretations of the Freedoms found a familiar home at The Saturday Evening Post, where they proved overwhelmingly popular. The U.S. government put the works on tour, and they helped raise $133 million for the war effort.

Enduring Ideals reveals the complex and sometimes unexpected story behind FDR's Freedoms and the role of Rockwell's paintings-on tour for the rst time in a generation-in illuminating them. In doing so, it brings together other works, by Rockwell and his contemporaries- such as Ben Shahn, Dorothea Lange, and Gordon Parks- along with analysis and commentary by art historians and others, including activist Ruby Bridges, artist Daisy Rockwell, and Ambassador William vanden Heuvel.

Stephanie Haboush Plunkett is Deputy Director/Chief Curator, Norman Rockwell Museum.

James J. Kimble, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Communication, Seton Hall University.

Hardcover, 192 pages. Measures 9 x 11 x 1 inches.

From the internationally touring exhibition Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms organized by Norman Rockwell Museum.
