Freedom from Want by Norman Rockwell

Freedom from Want by Norman Rockwell

Norman Rockwell (1894-1978)is one of the most beloved American artists. Freedom from Want is a classic illustration done in 1943 that is still relevant today. The artist created a warm loving environment in this picture that brings us all together at the Thanksgiving table. Although at first we may notice the succulent turkey and beautifully set table, it is the smiling and loving faces that remind us of the true meaning of Thanksgiving and ‘freedom from want”.

“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures forever.” Psalm 106:1
