剧情简介:

Andres, visiting the studio of a famous artist to inspect a new painting, is introduced to the beautiful model, who entertains and brews for him a cup of tea. It is a case of love at first sight. Afterward, they meet frequently, and in a month's time their engagement is announced. It proves a shock to his parents, who are of the "Four Hundred" and who have higher hopes for their son. His mother pleads with him to give up the girl, but without avail. In desperation she determines to see the girl and ask her to renounce the man she loves. The mother sends the model a letter and follows it herself to further plead. During the visit the girl is firm in her refusal, as she sincerely loves Andres and knows that it will break his heart if they are separated. When his mother leaves, however, she breaks down, overcome with the conviction that if they marry it will alter his social position. She writes to his mother, acquiescing to her demands, and determines on a plan which must cause him to cast her off. At the Bohemian supper in the studio, which they both attend, her actions are so extreme, and her treatment of him so harsh, that he retires perplexed and nearly broken-hearted. Andres' mother is gratified with the outcome of her "diplomacy," but fails to console her son. The girl is lost sight of. Andres never marries, but turns to business, and, it is believed, has forgotten entirely his only love affair, Five years later they meet again, for the last time under entirely different conditions. The girl, a broken-hearted woman, has drifted indifferently, and we find her at work in Andres' office as a scrub-woman. She accidentally opens the doors of a private cabinet to find enshrined within the painting of herself that caused their first meeting. Andres returns to lock the cabinet, is recognized, but the scrub-woman in tears only bends the lower over her brush, and then, he is gone forever.
