The story is sweet and lovable
16 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Rob Wagner, one of the foremost painters of this country and author of this scenario, personally supervised this production at the Selig Studios in Los Angeles. The producer's ideas dominate this picture, correct in every detail. Mr. Wagner's own children played the sons. Every property and picture used in the enormous studio and gallery scenes were brought direct from Mr. Wagner's studio. The portrait canvases alone are valued at over $10,000. The story is sweet and lovable and is imbued throughout with a wonderful realism and picturesque atmosphere. The story takes us in rapid succession through scenes in the artist's home, studio, gallery, etc., and gives us an intimate view of that much-envied, and much misunderstood land of enchantment, the artist's bohemia. - The Moving Picture World, September 30, 1911
