“Painted around 1930. A painting of the interior of a sugar house, when they are boiling sap. Painted from inside the Gray Brothers’ Sugar House in Ashfield, where Fabian carried me inside to work, because too cold and windy to work outside the day I went over there to paint. Made around 1930. So far as I know the only painting ever made of this subject matter, boiling inside.”
"This is the interior of the Gray Sugar House on Baptist corner, Ashfield, MA. The large holding tub is now gone."
The Sugar house is still in use, located near the Edge Hill golf course in Ashfield, Mass. The large holding tank is no longer present, but the sugar house still exists.
Exhibited at J. H. Miller Co. Galleries, Springfield, Mass. April 24 - May 8. 1928
The painting is privately owned.
There is a similar chalk drawing named In The Sugar House Boiling .
