RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted November 1935. Painting of November road edged with rows of maples and stone wall; side road running by the Halifax, Vt. House. Bought by Mrs. Wm. H. Moore’s sister in 1937 from among a number I sent down to New York (by Fabian in my car) for Mrs. Moore to see. Mrs. Moore’s sister is Mrs. Lora J. Knight, Santa Barbara, California.”

Comments on the back of a sepia print:

“Parallel rows as inspirations. Pale blue sky, russet yellow and tawny ground, green and gray walls and trees. Owned by Mrs. Lora J. Knight, Santa Barbara, California.”
