In this unique form of entertainment a well-known painting is selected, and an endeavour made to bring to life the scene, and the characters therein. We do not pretend that the story as given by us is founded on fact ; it is just our imagination of the incidents leading up to, and in some cases extending a little beyond, the actual scene depicted in the painting.
The enjoyment of these pictures depends, of course, very largely upon the listener's familiarity with the painting in question and his or her power of imagination, and it is to assist the latter that we suggest the lowering of the lights in your room while these pictures are presented.
