Descriptions

Mephistopheles causes artist's model to disappear.

Source: British Film Catalogue


The painter is astonished to see work done without effort, and shakes his head dubiously at his own portrait filling the canvas… The canvas is once more blank, and, as the artist stands… he perceives, to his great amazement, that the model is slowly fading from her platform, and at the same time is gradually appearing on the canvas like a developing photograph… the artist, in a transport of delight at the production of a painting in a few minutes, rushes from the studio and quickly returns with a dealer… Just as they turn to look at the picture, it immediately changes to a comic caricature making fun of them.
