RSW's Diary Comments

"Painted 1937. One of my early window pictures, a section of the studio back room, windows looking out to the outside of the north window (jutting out to the right) and the studio apple tree laden with snow. Purple bottle and blue green Mexican glasses, 2 or 3 small non-blossomed geraniums in small pots, a tin pan full of apples and a letter carelessly thrown down on the broad rough wooden shelf. Emmet Naylor used this painting on one of his Christmas cards. Bought by Mrs. Arline Wales of Northport, Maine."


Comments on the back of a sepia print:
