RSW's Diary Comments

"Painted around 1930. A large painting made from the same subject as Mr. Franklin's House with slight addition in introducing figure of the old gentleman feeding his cat. The house was in Warwick. Painted this canvas mostly in the studio but took it once or twice out to paint direct from the model. Also made a chalk drawing of this same subject."


Additional Notes

The artist, in his will, bequeathed three of the residual paintings to F. Earl Williams who then presented this painting to the Deerfield Academy, Deerfield, Mass. in 1957. It hangs in a study room of the main library at Deerfield Academy.
