RSW's Diary Comments

"“Painted prior to 1929. A painting of an old big round red water trough set against deep woodland, ferns and wild growth about it, water trickling from it. Painted at Connie Jarvis’ farm ( a former Lithuanian hired man I used to have and whom I used to visit with Miss Cowles for ‘painting change’ after Connie left me and bought this farm.) On the road between West Chesterfield and Worthington, about Chesterfield Gorge. Bought from one of my early Boston exhibitions by Mrs. Henry P. King, 118 Beacon St., Boston, the sister of John T. Spaulding of 99 Beacon St. As Mrs. King is now dead, I do not know who owns the canvas. Mrs. King’s summer residence was at Prides Crossing (Mass) next to that of Mrs. Wm. H. Moore."”

"'The Spring Tub,' Mr. Woodward again departs from the wood interiors, where light filters through tall, majestic trees."



From the description above, it would be safe to say that The Spring Tub is a Wood scene very popular in the early days of the Redgate Studio.



The Spring Tub is one of 25 pieces of work to exhibit at Woodward's One-Man show at the Lyman Residence Exhibition,.



Boston Globe, May 1929, by A. J. Philpott

"The Spring Tub is a colorful, luminous picture---a simple roadside scene---glorified."
