Norman Rockwell 1943 Print Ad – EACH ACCORDING TO THE DICTATES OF HIS OWN CONSCIENCE. This is a magazine printed photo page we are selling. The original painting was set in a barbershop, with patrons of various races and religions patiently waiting their turns. “I wanted it to make the statement that no man should be discriminated against regardless of his race or religion,” Rockwell said. Ultimately, Rockwell rejected that scene as ambiguous. Instead, his finished composition groups faces and hands — a mélange of different cultures — in prayerful contemplation, bearing the legend, “Each according to the dictates of his own conscience.”
