Working on the Statue of Liberty, also known as Statue of Liberty, is a 1946 oil painting by American illustrator Norman Rockwell, showing workmen cleaning the torch held aloft by the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor.
The New-York Historical Society exhibition, Rockwell, Roosevelt, & the Four Freedoms is the inspiration for the NYHistory Store's merchandise. The traveling exhibition, which was organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, Massachusetts, explores how Rockwell’s 1943 paintings—Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Fear, and Freedom from Want—gave visual voice to President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s call to the defense of freedom worldwide and took their place among the most enduring images in the history of American art. On view through September 2, 2018.
