Members Preview Lecture “Norman Rockwell: American Freedom”
Friday, December 13, 2019:
Presented by Kaylin Haverstock Weber, associate curator and Jeanie Kilroy Wilson Curator of American Painting and Sculpture
Norman Rockwell: American Freedom is the first comprehensive exhibition devoted to Norman Rockwell’s iconic depictions of the Four Freedoms outlined by Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Fear, and Freedom from Want.
This talk provides an overview of the exhibition, exploring how Rockwell’s 1943 paintings became some of the most indelible images in the history of American art and inspired a contemporary response: the photographs in The Four Freedoms Reimagined, also on view.
