United Nations is a charcoal study that Rockwell intended to be the basis for a 10-foot-long mural to be hung in the United Nations building in New York. However, Rockwell became disinterested in the project and left the work unfinished. He would later apply facets of the aborted United Nations project into one of his most famous works, The Golden Rule.

Alex Ross was heavily influenced by the works of Norman Rockwell. Rockwell's impact was so great that the lighting and composition of works like Rockwell's United Nations, The Golden Rule, and The Right to Know form the basis of the covers of Ross's comic book series Kingdom Come and Justice.
