DONATE ABOUT US HISTORY THE FOUR FREEDOMS

NORMAN
ROCKWELL
MUSEUM

In 1943, inspired by President Franklin Roosevelt’s address to Congress, Rockwell painted the Four Freedoms paintings.

THE FOUR
FREEDOMS

In his January 1941 address to Congress, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt articulated his vision for a postwar world founded on four basic human freedoms: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear.

Roosevelt's State of the Union address became known as his "Four Freedoms Speech", due to its conclusion that described the President's vision of a worldwide extension of the American ideals of individual liberties summarized by these four freedoms.

The Four Freedoms are now part of the permanent collection of Norman Rockwell Museum and reside in their own specially designed gallery space.
