The part of this painting that struck me was the face of the older man looking up at the blue-collared worker. One can imagine that Norman Rockwell’s art portrays a working class man speaking out for his freedoms in a town hall meeting. To me, the look on the old man’s face expresses pride in America’s future. The fact that the old man’s eyes are deliberately looking up at the worker portrays my idea that the elderly man is proud that this younger generation is speaking out for its rights. The old man’s tie is a bit disheveled, perhaps portraying that his white-collar lifestyle is not the perfect one he imagined. The old man’s face shows contentment; it is as if he is looking at the younger man and thinking “you’re doing good kid.” Another part of the old man’s depiction that spoke to me is how he is holding the annual report. His tight gripped of the rolled up pamphlet shows that he really doesn’t care what is currently in the system, but his eyes show that he cares deeply of the young man’s words. He seems to be admiringly looking at the young man, proud that he is taking advantage of his rights in America. Perhaps the elderly may had fought for those rights in a war, or perhaps he is looking at the young man so admirably because he is taking a stand, something that the older man never had the courage to do.
