About the Artwork

The Saturday Evening Post March 13, 1943.

In his January 1941 address to Congress, Franklin Delano Roosevelt articulated his vision for a postwar world founded on four basic human freedoms-freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want and freedom from fear. In 1942, Norman Rockwell was working on a piece commissioned by the Ordnance Department of the U. S. Army a painting of a machine gunner in need of ammunition. Posters of the gunner, titled "Let's give him Enough and On Time," were distributed to ordnance plants throughout the country to encourage production. But Rockwell wanted to do more for the war effort and decided he would illustrate Roosevelt's four freedoms.
