Painted prior to 1930, an autumn still life made in the old
studio that burnt in 1933. Yellow and white chrysanthemums in a brown jug
backed by a round black Italian plate all against the lower part of an old
wall map of Shelburne Falls, grapes and pears and pomegranates grouped on
the cabinet around the brown jug. Rather academic and trite in approach but
still nice color for the right wall."
