尽管 Norman Rockwell 被大众所喜爱,评论家们对他的态度一直模棱两可。Clement Greenberg 对 Rockwell 不以为然,认为其作品过于商业化且缺乏严肃性——是“sentimental"和"saccharine”的。毕竟,在60年代的美国艺术界,抽象表现主义绘画才是主流。

其实,Rockwell 自有他严肃的一面。在60年代末期,他的作品重心逐渐向政治领域转移,关注言论自由与民权运动。在这段时期里,他最出名的作品应该是于1943创作的《四自由》(The Four Freedoms: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear). 标题取自罗斯福总统在1941关于战后重建的演讲。这一系列作品大获成功,巡展至16个城市,超过百万的参观者争相购买战争债券 (和邮票) 以获得一幅印刷品,总金额高达$132M。随后,官方又打印出4M套海报,每一套上都印有“购买战争债券” (Buy War Bonds) 的口号标语。
