Additional Notes

This painting has frequently been confused with another painting of Mary Lyon's Hill, aptly sized 40 x 50" painting named, Mary Lyon's Hill, purchased by the Mount Holyoke Class of 1935 and still hangs in the school's art museum.This painting is unnamed and a smaller 30 x 36" sized version. Even we confused the two for a period of time, having the unnamed painting as the image for the 40 x 50 painting. All of that is now sorted out. Each painting image is now assigned to its respective page.

One can see that the perspectives slightly vary. Woodward appears to be higher up the Wilder pasture in the 40 x 50 Mary Lyon's Hill painting than the unnamed 30 x 36. The tree lines are different and the location of the steeple of Mary Lyon's Church marking the Buckland village center is vastly different in each painting. In fact you can see more of the village's other buildings in this unnamed painting. Both paintings appear to be made around the same time given that there are only slight differences in the cut clearings up the face of the double-peaked hill.
