a rare archival sound film from 1949, Golden-Age illustrator Arthur
William Brown (1881-1966) tells the story of his career and the
principles behind his pictures.
The footage was shot by Frank
Reilly, part of Reilly's "Artists at Work" series. According to Reilly
himself, the purpose of the film "is to impress upon us the
accomplishments of those among us now and to perpetuate their memory for
the inspiration of those who are to follow."
