the great artist Fortunino Matania working outside his studio, both comfortably sitting on his Rolls, and his camper trailer the Rolls pulled for the comfort of his model, and storage of his painting supplies

I missed the Rolls Royce on the left edge of this photo the first couple times I looked at it.  Great trailer with the hatchback canopy

and below, his painting of his studio as an example of his incredible skill

Matania was recommented to Hollywood director Cecil B. DeMille and produced a number of paintings of Rome and Egypt from which authentic designs could be made for the movie The Ten Commandments.

Matania applied his very realistic style to illustrations for Edgar Rice Burroughs' Pirates of Venus and in Lost on Venus.
