Scarlett O'Hara

de bene esse: literally, of well-being, morally acceptable but subject to future validation or exception

This life-sized portrait of Scarlett O'Hara, by artist Helen Carlton, hung on the wall in Rhett Butler’s bedroom in the film Gone With the Wind. During the 1939 Atlanta premiere of the film, the portrait was moved to the Davison-Paxon department store as part of a window display. Afterwards, the painting hung in the cafeteria of the Margaret Mitchell Elementary School in northwest Atlanta. The painting, on loan to the Atlanta Historical Center by the Atlanta Board of Education, is currently on display at the Margaret Mitchell House.
