Orphan Girl at the Cemetery by Eugène Delacroix

Painting, in the beginning, was a trade like any other. Some men became picture makers as others became glaziers or carpenters. Painters painted shields, saddles and banners. The primitive painter was more of a craftsman than we are; he learned his trade superlatively well before he thought of letting himself go. The reverse is true today.
