Rockwell Was Amazing

The top picture is of Rosie the Riveter by Norman Rockwell. The painting on the bottom is of Jeremiah the Prophet by Michealangelo.

Rockwell was an amazing artist because he had a way of synthisizing timeless concepts and bringing them into an American theme.

You have the wrong Prophet. The picture at the bottom, by Michelangelo Buonarotti, from the Vatican's Sistine Chapel, is actually that of Isaiah, not Jeremiah.

I stand corrected. Thank you! The painting is of Isaiah. (However, I personally think he looks more like Jeremiah!)
