RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted prior to 1929. A painting of the 3 barns at the Keach farm in Buckland (where I painted so much for so many years). Done from the driveway as one approached the house. From one of my early Boston exhibitions bought by Mrs. W. Scott Fitz (daughter-in-law of Oliver Wendell Holmes) of 75 Beacon St., Boston (now deceased). A very decorative canvas. I don’t know where it is now (1947)."

"....What a story of rural New England that picture The Three Barns tells. They are located beside a hill road, ramshackle but grayed and beautiful in color by time and nestling in the lush greens of mid-summer foliage. ...."
