"Save Freedom of Speech" by Vermont painter Norman Rockwell

This painting, Freedom of Speech, is part of Four Freedoms, a series of oil paintings by nationally-known painter Norman Rockwell  that was produced for publication in the Saturday Evening Post during World War II to promote the sale and purchase of U.S. War Bonds. Rockwell's inspiration for Freedom of Speech is said to be Vermont's Town Meeting tradition, where every citizen can exercise the right to speak his or her views and participate in governance of their town.
