Freedom from Want wasn't published as a Thanksgiving image. Rockwell had originally intended it to be one, but it became part of the Four Freedoms images instead.

This was the last of Rockwell's paintings to be used on the cover of a Thanksgiving issue. It is my favorite. I have had the chance to see it in person. The light in the painting is awesome. The textures and drawing are perfect. The scene through the window is painted so thin you can see the pencil through it, while the foreground elements use a subtle impasto to great effect. This, for me, is Rockwell at his best.
