America (USA) has often been designated as the “Promised Land”! And it may be so, since it is, in theory, the country with the most opportunities, but also the country where multiculturalism may be the most distinctive feature of its identity.
But by the time the US became the “Promised Land”, it had gone through several stages of “civil” and internal strife. The great shapers of present-day America were many, some well known and others still unknown to the general public.
A figure who also played an important role in shaping US identity was the realistic painter Norman Rockwell, who was born in 1894 in New York City and died in 1978 in Massachusetts.
An outstanding artist, a true observer of real life and one of the most authentic expressors of a time in the country that influenced the whole world.
One of his most famous works was the painting “The Problem We All Live With”, inspired by little Ruby Bridges, the first African-American child to desegregate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana.
