Norman Rockwell(1943) Easter Egg - Self Portrait for America
President Roosevelt was tops at morale boosting while in charge of the country. His propaganda is legendary.
He commissioned famous folksy illustrator Norman Rockwell to paint a series of four large paintings to portray "The Four Freedoms" guaranteed to a strong America, inherent to average Americans.
1.Freedom of Speech 2.Freedom of Worship 3.Freedom From Fear 4. Freedom From Want
In "Freedom From Want", Rockwell's tongue-in-cheek cameo is looking over his left shoulder from the bottom right hand corner right at (you) the observer of this popular picture of-- grandmother holding the huge turkey at the head of the crowded dinner table.
