RSW's Diary Comments

The following are remarks by Woodward from his diary regarding Passing Barn At Noon

"...The drawing [The Proud Rooster] was bought by Mrs. Henry Everett of Pasadena, prior to 1930. At her death I had it bought for me at the auction of her possessions which were not mentioned in her will. When it came back to me I was so pleased with composition and theme that I painted from it the above canvas." [Passing Barn At Noon]
