** Rockwell first painted ''Four Freedoms'' for the U.S. Government, at the start of WorldWarII, to use as propaganda posters, but none of the agencies he approached wanted them. By 1943 he allowed the ''Post'' to reprint them... and the fan response was overwhelming to where the government came back asking to use them for a War Bonds promotional tour. That tour ended up making $160 million for the War Effort. The four paintings - especially ''Freedom From Want'' - are among the most famous American works of art in the world.

* VindicatedByHistory: Art critics during his career dismissed his work as "banal" and considered him a mere "illustrator" (which Rockwell didn't mind, or even disagree with). It wasn't until the 1970s during his late career when critics re-appraised his artwork and realized the emotional impact his works had.
