RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted in 1938. Probably the handsomest still life I ever painted. Yellow Chinese lily in green jar, henna colored round Chinese fan, my yellow Chinese duck, other small things---resting on and back-grounded by a fold-creased piece of white satin, on the vertical part of which is sewed a piece of colorful Chinese embroidery. Much exhibited, enthusiastically admired but not bought until July, 1946, when Dr .B. T. Guild, Barker’s Road Point, Sands Point, Long Island, N. Y. bought it. (Along with ‘Winter Song’ for his wife.) The Guilds are my close friends and it hangs in a very beautiful home.”
