RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted in 1943. View of the village of Heath showing church and store, the first outdoor painting made in 1943. Clifton Eldridge helping me then. Excellent expression of the high Heath mountain top atmosphere. Bought in 1945 by Mr. Luther Perry of Shelburne Falls, and St. Petersburg, Florida.”


Additional Notes
