Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms

Selections from the textile museum collection

February 13–April 29, 2019

Norman Rockwell’s masterpieces came to Washington as part of a major international traveling exhibition on the Four Freedoms famously outlined by Franklin D. Roosevelt: freedom of speech; freedom of worship; freedom from want; and freedom from fear. In Enduring Ideals, Rockwell’s iconic paintings and works by other artists captured expressions of freedom from World War II to today.
