Norman Rockwell originally painted these four depictions of the concept of freedom in 1943, drawing inspiration from Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1941 State of the Union Address outlining four fundamental and universal human rights: the freedom of speech, the freedom of worship, the freedom from fear, and the freedom from want.
