RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted about 1935 or 36. Large maple back of Mrs. Griswold’s in November. Sent to Macbeths, Grand Central Galleries, Jordon Marsh Exhibition, Winchester Art Association etc., etc.”

Comments on the back of a sepia print:

“A very 'livable' canvas, subtle in late November coloring. Sky is in pale grays and yellowish whites. Trees grayish violets, foreground rose, ochre and violet-red. $850”


“Hard to describe the subtle coloring and November atmosphere of this canvas. I consider this one of my outstanding works, and rather hope it will be the one you select. Foreground runs up from pale tawny-green through ochre and rose, with gray-green ledges breaking through. Mid band of trees dark dull green and gray-violet. Giant rock maple silhouetted against pale yellowish sky with gray cloud patches.”
