Additional Notes

Exhibited at Deerfield Academy, Deerfield, Mass., June 6-12, 1932

Syracuse Post Standard, May 31, 1931. Art Chat, by Anna W. Olmsted

"An October Day, this, when the colors seem too good to be true; the sky a dazzle of strong unrelieved blue, against which the fiery reds and golds of the trees compel attention in their autumnal splendor---a scene in which, as the artist himself has expressed it, he has "felt the pure essence of brilliant autumn."


Syracuse Post Standard, May, 1931

"Fall Flame is an excellent nature study with a brilliant red tree in the foreground."


Boston Globe, March 10, 1931, by A. J. Philpott

"What a story of the New England Autumn is Fall Flame, for here, truly are the flaming colors that give the New England foliage its coronal distinction in Autumn. That is a wonderful picture."

Editors note: We assume Mrs. Rhoades mistakenly refers to a painting titled Fall Flame because the Rhoades actually had purchased Autumn Flame, not Fall Flame.
