  • During World War II the United States Government used many of the era’s popular artists and illustrators to create posters to support the war effort. In this design by Norman Rockwell, the viewer is encouraged to purchase war bonds to financially support the government and to help bring the soldiers’ return home . This well detailed and real life scene is very typical of Norman Rockwell’s style and he depicts a working class family and the returning soldier coming home. The viewer is used to “  Hasten  the Homecoming “ by buying war bonds.
