Storyline

David Hoyt, a rich American patron of arts, is traveling in Europe with his daughter, Phyllis, and makes a tour of the Paris "Quartier" in search of a struggling artist. He encounters Curtis Barton, who answers all requirements, for he is living in poverty until he finishes his picture to enter at the great salon. The Hoyts visit Barton's studio, and a love spark kindles between Barton and Phyllis. Some days later while Barton and some fellow students are waiting for news of the salon awards, one of them bursts in, exclaiming that Barton's picture has been accepted, also "the portrait of Willard." Willard is not present. Willard's painting is known as "The Lady of the Cyclamen." Barton takes Phyllis to see "The Lady of the Cyclamen," and he explains that the identity of the lady is a mystery. Phyllis is amazed to recognize the subject as an American girl. She begs Barton to take her to Ulrica, the subject, at once, only to hear that she is dead. Barton relates to her the story of the ...

Told with feeling and refinement
31 October 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A pathetic story of artist life in Paris and America is told with feeling and refinement, but with little appreciation of dramatic values, in this two-reel photoplay. There is no clash of human wills in the unfolding of the plot, the death of the heroine supplying the main motive. The author has evidently not made a close study of dramatic construction and learned to get the proper focus on his characters. The two leading persons of the drama in question, are kept too much in the background. Aside from a few ungrammatical sentences and the abuse of the overworked comma in the inserts, the handling of the material given them reflects great credit upon the Selig forces. The atmosphere of the different scenes is faithfully preserved; the acting is also praiseworthy. Stella Razeto and Jack McDonald are in the cast. - The Moving Picture World, March 27, 1915
