Norman Rockwell, Part Two

America was never more united in a single national effort than it was during the Second World War. During the dark days of these years, American on the home front took comfort from a steady stream of covers on the Saturday Evening Post. Through a series of invented characters, such as Rosie the Riveter, who personified the United States, and the famous suite, The Four Freedoms, Rockwell created icons for his country.
