Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)
Former First Lady, statesman, teacher, writer, advocate and humanitarian Eleanor Roosevelt lived as a passionate servant to humanity. She greatly expanded the role of First Lady of the United States, and fought for the advancement of labor, minorities, the poor, women and young people. She served as a delegate to the United Nations; for which she secured the passage of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Revered and remembered as the “First Lady of the World,” she made the world a better place for all people.
What Watson thinks
Watson analyzed Roosevelt’s speeches, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, autobiography, daily newspaper column My Day written over 27 years, as well as biographies and press articles written about her and suggested an unexpected association–that the concepts in Roosevelt’s writing have a strong association with contemporary music of 2007 - 2008, with 95% relevancy. The common themes of music at that time were love and empowerment.
This insight was shared with three artists–composer Trevor Gureckis, creative director and filmmaker Bastien Baumann and designer/sculptor Lucas Camargo–who together interpreted it to create a portrait of the 32nd First Lady that could not have existed without Watson’s help.
