An extract from Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm
Rebecca’s idea of being a painter like her friend Miss Ross was gradually receding, owing to the apparently insuperable difficulties in securing any instruction.
Her aunt Miranda saw no wisdom in cultivating such a talent, and could not conceive that any money could ever be earned by its exercise.
“Hand painted picures” were held in little esteem in Riverboro, where the cheerful chromo or the dignified steel engraving were respected and valued.
