1st item: Norman Perceval Rockwell (New York/Massachusetts, 1894-1978) lithograph in colors on paper depicting Gary Cooper getting ready on the set for the motion picture as "The Texan". Pencil signed lower right " Norman Rockwell" and editioned "A/P" for artist's proof lower left. Framed in a modern matte metal overlay frame, linen mat under glass. Sight: 22 3/4" H x 17 3/4" W. Frame: 31" H x 25 1/2" W. Note: The original painting was used as the cover illustration for The Saturday Evening Post dated May 24,1930. 2nd item: Norman Perceval Rockwell (New York/Massachusetts, 1894-1978) poster titled "Save Freedom of Worship", inspired by President Franklin Roosevelt's annual message to Congress on January 6, 1941. Poster depicts figures of varying faiths in prayer or contemplation and was produced by the Office of War for its war bond campaign. Housed in a modern ebonized black frame. Sight: 27 1/2" H x 19 1/2" W. Framed: 30" H x 22" W. Circa 1940's. Note: President Franklin D. Roosevelt in his annual message to Congress on January 6, 1941, articulated the aims of the nation facing the threat of a world at war. "We look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms" he stated. Two of these freedoms were specifically included in the Bill of Rights, freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Two were freedoms deeply desired by a generation confronted by economic depression and the threat of dictatorships, freedom from want and freedom from fear. Norman Rockwell dramatized those aims in a series of paintings that appeared as covers for the Saturday Evening Post and as posters produced by the Office of War Information for its war bond campaign in 1943.
