The Problem We All Live With by Norman Rokwell was originally published as a centerfold in the January 14, 1964 issue of Look. Rockwell had ended his contract with the Saturday Evening Post the previous year due to frustration with the limits the magazine placed on his expression of political themes, and Look offered him a forum for his progressive social interests, including civil rights and racial integration.
At Ruby Bridges’ suggestion, in July 2011 President Barack Obama had the painting installed in the White House, in a hallway outside the Oval Office through October 2011. Art historian William Kloss stated, “It’s a painting that could not be hung even for a brief time in the public spaces [of the White House]. I’m pretty sure of that.”
