The Writing Lesson. Georges Claude (French, 1854-1922).
In a busy interior of a family who clearly values fine art, a mother gives a writing lesson to a child at a fine desk covered with papers and books. They are accompanied by those people who are the subjects of the many paintings on the walls and the sculpture.
"If the novel has a theme it is that of survival. What makes some people able to come through catastrophes and others, apparently just as able, strong and brave, go under? It happens in every upheaval. Some people survive; others don’t. What qualities are in those who fight their way through triumphantly that are lacking in those who go under…? I only know that the survivors used to call that quality ‘gumption.’ So I wrote about the people who had gumption and the people who didn’t.” — Margaret Mitchell, 1936
