Joseph Harker is seen painting both a "model" and a large canvas theatrical backdrop.
The famous theatrical scenic artist Mr Joseph Harker displays a large painted canvas backdrop.
Mr Harker is shown painting a "model" - a small scale painting of the finished subject matter. Several artists then use this as a guide for the forty-foot version. Mr Harker smokes a pipe whilst he paints a tree on the large canvas. Includes a nice C/U of the artist.
