“Prior to 1926. Broad spring panorama of Keach’s farm and valley made from the upper pasture slope above their house. Owned by Mr. and Mrs. Robert T. Lee of Manchester, Vermont.”
"Mr. Woodward has an unusual gift for making a close and vivid picture of distant views seen from high vantage points. April at Keach's [Farm] is such an one..."
“This man gets the rugged strength as well as the poetry and color of the New England landscape: this panoramic view of a side-hill stretch of country called April at Keach’s Farm. This is a picture that few artists would care to tackle, for it is a big bit of work. But what a glorious picture Mr. Woodward has made of this rolling country with its fields, farmhouses, fences, walls and roads---topographically perfect and knit together in a fine harmony of line and color. This is a splendid painting."
“Of similar appeal is Robert Strong Woodward’s April at Keach’s Farm, wherein the color of a Berkshire hillside is seen in a veritable Persian carpet of soft lines and the earth contours are felt with a keenness for every square foot of the scene. Minute observation, governed by a feeling for the view as a whole is the mark of this picture. There is a sense of action in the very brush strokes, as in a landscape by Van Gogh" ” To See Article Click Here
