Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?
Another generation and everybody'll live to be a hundred and they’ll all have teeth like Eskimos! The dentist is all done, my dear man. He’ll go out of the picture like the bison. (E. O’Connor, “The Last Hurrah”)
go out of the picture = become extinct
