Over a caption of "All that is well and good!" we see an insane-appearing artist with bushy hair, standing in his studio with palette and brushes before a large sketch of a patriarchal man with a halo. The artist's teeth are bared as he faces a well-dressed man wearing top hat, blue-and-white scarf, blue coat and white trousers and carrying a cane. The artist says, "The devil you say! You want something done with machines? Well, you have talent! Use it to paint double-doors and that'll give you plenty of work." (Virginia K. Anderson 04/10/95)
