RSW's Diary Comments

I think painted in the late 1920s. One of my early canvases painted high, on the steep perilous road of Herbert Keachs sugar orchard. Bought prior to 1930 by Bob Kerr, then of Holyoke, now of 150 Highland Ave., Montclair, N. J. (Mr. and Mrs. Robert Kerr).


Additional Notes

In the early records this painting was named When Drifts Melt Fast and it was reproduced in several newspaper articles about exhibitions. Sold at Butterfields on 6/11/95 for $2,875 It is unknown how it happened to be returned to the artist.


The above photo is of this deteriorated painting with a "D" (to be destroyed) ;on the back of the frame.
