  • In this scene a young student sits outside the principal’s office, sporting a black eye, with hair and clothes in disarray. She smiles out at us with a satisfied expression, suggesting that she was the victor of the tussle, which was worth whatever consequences are coming her way. The painting’s humor rests on our faulty assumption that young ladies don’t get into fights, and, if they did, they would never be proud of it.
