Lot #38: Norman Rockwell ''Four Freedoms'' Posters -- Complete Set of Four from 1943


Original and complete set of ''Four Freedoms'' posters by Norman Rockwell from 1943. Posters each measure 20'' x 28'', and depict ''Freedom of Speech'', ''Freedom of Worship'', ''Freedom from Want'' and ''Freedom from Fear'', four tenets of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1941 State of the Union address. Rockwell was so inspired by the speech that he created the oil paintings in 1943, which were then featured in ''The Saturday Evening Post'' and reproduced by the Office of War Information. Posters are original from 1943, with OWI printing copy on lower margin of each, as called for. Chipping along margins, original folds with separation starting at edges, mostly uniform toning and dampstaining at bottom. Overall an attractive set in very good condition.
