Diorama background painter on N.P.R.

National Public Radio did a feature about the passing of Fred Scherer, one of the diorama background painters for the American Museum of Natural History, and an associate of James Perry Wilson.

It's great to finally see these artists getting some of the recognition they deserve. The books by Stephen Quinn, Michael Anderson, and Karen Wonders, along with your blog, seem to me to be the things most responsible for the revival of interest. Thank you!
