RSW's Diary Comments

“Spring of 1946. A section of the studio at my north window shelf. The canvas shows corner with a framed picture in it, the little S.E. easel window to the right beyond which is my empty easel, the paint cart with an exceptionally realistic “portrait” of my empty palette on it. A dark picture, mostly in browns, because of the woodwork etc.. Sold from the studio in Sept. 1947 to Dr. L. H. Doolittle of 1100 River Road, Agawam, Mass. to be hung in the reception room of his doctor’s office at 83 State Street, Springfield 3, Mass.”
