Freedom From Want

I was curious as to what the Norman Rockwell ‘Freedom From Want’ actually looked like and what other opinions were on it, so here’s a link to an article about the picture.

Like we discussed in class on Tuesday, this is a stereotypical media interpretation of what a family Thanksgiving dinner looks like. I found it interesting that the grandparents, or at least that is who it seems to be, are the ones at the head of the table carving the turkey. I would think it would be the alpha male type dad who would take the head of the table with a pretty wife helping set down the turkey. The table is also pretty void of any other Thanksgiving dishes. Also the guy at the bottom right of the picture is looking right out at the viewer, which is kind of weird.
