1. The Most Beloved American Writer (Louisa May Alcott), Norman Rockwell, 1937, oil on canvas, Collection of George Lucas.

    Shows Jo March, protagonist of the novel and surrogate for Alcott, in the act of creating a narrative that is a coming-of-age story about the joys and challenges of growing up. “The sun lay warmly in the high window, showing Jo seated on the old sofa, writing busily, with her papers spread out upon a trunk before her, while Scrabble, the pet rat, promenaded the beams overhead, accompanied by his oldest son”— from chapter 14 in Little Women.
