These posters are guaranteed original war posters. They are not REPRINTS or REPRODUCTIONS.
Inspired by President Roosevelt's 1941 address to congress, Norman Rockwell created four paintings now remembered among his most iconic of his works. These posters display the four freedoms that President Roosevelt envisioned as the world's post-war foundation.
These posters were printed in three different sizes. 20"x28", 27"x40", and the largest was 40"x56". The posters offered here are the largest size of 40"x56". The larger posters are incredibly difficult to come by but finding a complete set is nearly impossible. Whoever buys this set of posters will most likely be one of the only people to have the complete set of this extremely rare size.
The same set also hangs in the center room exhibit of the Norman Rockwell Museum in Massachusetts so I can say that this set of posters is absolutely museum quality.
These posters were professionally linen backed and are ready to frame. The photos above are of the actual items you will receive. Please see for condition. Professional restoration has addressed issues such as fold line wear, cross fold separation, border wear, chips, toning, surface scuffs, etc. Some of these defects are still visible but do not take away from the incredible artwork. These posters are in C7-C8 Very Good to Excellent/Excellent condition.
