Storyline

While painting the demure little model, Vera, who sat for him day after day, Reginald Spencer was unconscious of the fact that she was falling very deeply in love with him. Success comes Reginald's way and he has a commission to paint the portrait of a handsome society girl. Between the artist and this lady something like affection springs up and poor little Vera finds herself out in the cold. But with feminine intuition she is not long in discovering that she has a rival, whom she identifies with the original of the portrait that Spencer is lavishing so much time on. There is to be a private view of the portrait in the artist's studio. The society girl, her mother and several friends arrive, only to discover, when Spencer draws aside the curtain, concealing the masterpiece from view, that it has been hacked and cut out of all recognition. Of course, the society people desert him on this terrible catastrophe and he is left in the depths of misery. Poor little Vera creeps in to confess... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

By chance, they meet on the pier
12 June 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The picture tells the story of a young artist's model. She was in love with the artist, and the portrait, she destroyed it as it stood on its easel, was of the rich Miss Belairs. The artist had loved the pretty model until the rich lady came. He was very much in need of money. When the artist draws aside the curtain to exhibit the portrait to Miss Belairs and her friends, he finds it ruined. The ladies leave coldly. The artist and the girl both separately determine to commit suicide, but, by chance, they meet on the pier. The ending is satisfactory. It is a commendable picture, carefully managed and fairly well acted. Some of its scenes are extremely well interpreted. - The Moving Picture World, January 6, 1912
