Freedom From Fear By Norman Rockwell

Good Essays
What is the Perfect Family? Norman Rockwell is a very imaginative character. He was able to paint images that captured the attention of millions. The first picture on page 22 is “A Family Tree”. It ends with a man, a woman, and a child. Because this is a family tree, we can infer that this is a husband, a wife, and their child. The second picture, “Freedom from Want”, shows a family gathering on a dinner table. That event could be what is known as Thanksgiving Dinner. The third picture, “Freedom from Fear”, shows a mom and a dad tucking there kids into bed. Now just by looking at these paintings, evidence of what they represent is pretty straight forward. This is the idealistic view of what families should look like about 50 years ago,
