RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted in 1944. A brilliant autumn “composite” composed in the studio for a Vose client, which was never bought by said client; road and walls in foreground taken from Aaron Baggs Wind’ll Blow Hill, mountain, farm and view beyond (with orchard), taken from Just After Haying Time. From this same theme, but with a heavy group of trees to the left. I made another canvas (22 x 38) (also refused by the Vose client, but soon bought by Mr. and Mrs. Billings of Hatfield called Through October Hills which see) Sold in late November 1947, through Mr. Earl Perry to Newton Savings Bank, Newton 58, Mass. ,where with 2 other paintings it had been hanging since May, 1947.”


Comments on the back of a sepia print:

"Sold to Mrs. F. Raymond Andrews of Greenfield day before yesterday, Oct. 15, 1945. Returned (as not suiting wallpaper) for November Paths.”
