Today is Art and Beauty Tuesday here at the Well, and this is a little extra bit of art history with a big dose of American history thrown in.
This is a 1941 compilation from the FDR library. At the beginning of the film, we see Norman Rockwell in the process of painting his "Four Freedoms" including the famous painting we see every year on Thanksgiving, "Freedom from Want." Fascinating to see the models he used for the paintings--they were his neighbors.
The rest of the film shows FDR talking about the importance of war bonds in raising money for the war, and Eleanor visiting soldiers and telling a joke (albeit a bit racist from today's standpoint.)
Anyway, I thought the beginning of the film particularly interesting from an artistic standpoint.
