This chalk drawing was made in the early 1930s of the back side of the Keach farm on Charlemont Road, Buckland, Mass.


This small charcoal drawing was originally purchased by Mrs. Henry (Josephine) Everett. After her death most of the Woodwards she had purchased were bequeathed to the Art Institute of Pasadena which had first choice of all of her collection. This drawing and the chalk drawing The Proud Rooster were not chosen by the museum and were left to be auctioned. RSW purchased them both back. Grey Boards was then sold to a Greenfield man. The Proud Rooster was copied by RSW into an oil painting which then sold under the title Passing a Barn at Noon.
