The problem we all live with

The problem we all live with, Norman Rockwell, 1960, painting. Norman Rockwell was an admirer of Rembrandt, he was admired for his realism in abstract paintings. Rockwell painted real life events that we the struggles of his time. I like this painting because of the story and history behind it, but I also like texture displayed in the painting. This was painted to depict the American Civil Rights struggle of 1960. This girl is Ruby Bridges on her first day of first grade that the judge ordered desegregation. This painting is used in schools to teach students about the struggles of the 60's and the segregation that existed in schools.
