Description about the painting:
This is a quote of George Veditz:
“Wherever the deaf have received an education the method by which it is imparted is the burning question of the day with them, for the deaf are what their schooling make them more than any other class of humans. They are facing not a theory but a condition, for they are first, last, and all the time the people of the eye.” – 1910
This was his response to Alexander Graham Bell’s letter declining to endorse the National Association of the Deaf’s resolution for American Sign Language and English in Deaf schools.
