Decade by decade, Rockwell's pictures chronicled the introduction of radio and television, automobile and airplane travel, and even flights to the moon. During the Second World War, Rockwell brought to life the words of President Franklin D. Roosevelt with his series of paintings The Four Freedoms.

At age 70, Rockwell embarked on a new chapter in his career, for Look magazine, and made some surprisingly hard-hitting pictures addressing the Civil Rights struggle. In 1977, Rockwell received the nation's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, for his "vivid and affectionate portraits of our country." He died peacefully at his home in Stockbridge on November 8, 1978, at the age of 84.
