Synopsis
John Wilson is an artist of little talent and doesn’t take criticism well, so he kills famous painter Norton Rockhill who had put down his work after showing him a painting of how he was going to die. He then sent similar paintings to other critics of his work, but eventually his killing spree was stopped by the Hangman.

Indexer Notes

Golden Age artist Paul Reinman (as Reinmann) is refereed to as an artist whose painting is exhibited in an art gallery. Reinman actually was a painter and examples of his work exist.
