A door-to-door salesman meets a portrait artist who asks him to sit for her. The artist, Alice Neel, becomes famous years later as does her iconic painting, Fuller Brush Man. This is the story of the man behind the portrait, Dewald Strauss, his son's discovery of Fuller Brush Man, and the struggle for his recognition as the true subject of the previously anonymous painting.
