RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted in 1945. The west gable view of the Halifax House (same point of view as in the summer picture At Haying Time) showing mountain to left, arched elm over ell gable and the half-dozen magnificent yard maples to the right over a stone wall, prominent foreground of Nov. abandoned grasses and goldenrod gone to seed. A November sky of clouds and blue, tree shadows on sunlit red gable end of house. One of the most loved canvases I ever made, as holding all I love in New England November. Bought in the early spring of 1946 by Ethel R. Dow, 46 Warren Ave. Woburn. Mass. She has been planning to buy a canvas for several years and this one seemed to hold her choice of ’everything’.”
