“Painted in summer 1932. A view made from upper site of old Whitingham, Vt. Village, originally a 30 x 36 but cut down to the above size. Sold Nov., 1952, to Mrs. Theodore Crowyn of Bernardston to be hung in the Turners Falls Carnegie Library in memory of her sister, Edith Barber, librarian there for 25 years.”
Information found at the Smithsonian Archives of American Art revealed a comment by RSW. In his own handwriting, on the back of a sepia print, he says that he was dissatisfied with the sky in a painting called Mountains in Vermont and that he did not like the name of it. He completely repainted the sky and re-named the painting Mountains in Summer.
