Storyline

He was a poor but talented artist, struggling for fame in a shabby little studio. Food of any kind had ceased to be a necessity with him and had become a luxury, for out of his meager savings he was able to buy it but rarely. Below him, in the same building, was another artist, fatuous and rich. His gorgeous atelier constantly rang with the gay laughter, happy talk and merry tinkle of the wine glasses of his many friends of the Bohemian world in which he shone. And the queen of the rich artist's circle was his beautiful model, a girl of many moods and fancies, a reckless, light-hearted creature of impulse. One day the poor artist, suffering the pangs of hunger and being at the end of his resources, decided to sell one of his pictures for what it would bring, in order to buy bread. Taking it from the wall, he started out of the building. As he passed the door of his rich neighbor, the beautiful model appeared, followed by a crowd of admirers.

This picture appeals strongly to the emotions of the audience
28 September 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture that holds the audience closely to the end. Perhaps it is the change in the beautiful model; perhaps it is in the sharp contrast between the gay Bohemian life of the rich and successful artist and the hopelessness of the one who had genius, but was beset with misfortune. Whatever it may be, the attraction is there, and the emotions are deeply moved as the beautiful model, fulfilling her promise to pose for the poor artist, comes to understand the spirituality of his nature and her own responds to it. But it is too late. Starvation has done its work. He dies just as he finishes a picture which is a masterpiece. Acted with sympathy which seizes upon the dramatic possibilities of the subject, and photographed with skill, this picture appeals strongly to the emotions of the audience and the sympathy for him is outspoken. After his death the same sympathy is extended to the model, who, realizing the worthlessness of the life she has been living, renounces it and enters a convent. The Imp Company has produced a picture which cannot fail to interest. - The Moving Picture World, November 26, 1910
