“. . .The alternative was to mount the canvas or panel on an easel, which would require the painter to bend down to the ground whenever a tube of paint or tool was needed. This situation was remedied by further innovation in the form of the Gloucester or Anderson Easel, a good wide based set-up that can more than handle the task and is still in use today. It was designed to accommodate the 16×20 box that was then mounted on the easel. This eliminated the need of constant bending and the accompanying back problems.”
