About: In this story, a rural house painter is so entranced by a woman's beauty that he decides to paint her portrait.
Andrew Loomis brought a cinematic style to stories fraught with emotion. An illustrator's goal, he said, is tool tell a story by going "beyond the obvious fact to...characterization, to the emotional and dramatic." An author of "how-to" books for illustrators, he recommended the work of Howard Pyle to his readers.
