American Artist;May1958, Vol. 22 Issue 5, p52
The article describes William McK. Spierer as an artist who never sell his original watercolor paintings but makes his work known through reproductions for home and office interiors. It explains that the reproductions are not cheap copies of the originals since they are merely reduced in scale, lithographed in color and printed on fine-quality antique paper. Spierer describes how he allocates his time for doing the reproductions in order to spend a few hours each day with his family. Featured in the article is his watercolor "The Left Bank - Paris."
