Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of painter Lennart Anderson.

Giving a tour of his studio, Anderson discusses a range of topics from the painting currently on his easel, to a painting he has been working on for 30 years, to working in spite of diminishing eye sight. "The idea that my eyes are bad makes one think that you're going to paint like an expressionist or sloppy or something," he comments, "but I found it was just the opposite. I was closer to Ingres than I was to Soutine or Kokoschka... it's very intense holding on to the line that has been measured."
