TAKE OIL PAINTING TO BUFFALO ACADEMY
The large oil painting, which was the work of Robert Woodward, that has been in Vice's show window for several days past, will be taken to the Buffalo academy sometime this week. The picture, "Evening on the Hills" has attracted much attention as it is a local view and
was sketched from Alvin Goodnow's farm
above D. W. Bliss's place.


Artwork Mentioned

Evening on the Hills

Noteworthy:

This painting holds the distinction of the first known artwork, outside of the National Acedemy of Design and Boston Art Club, to hang in a museum. Its whereabouts are unknown. There is no record of it ever appearing anywhere else after the Albright. We wonder if it was purchased by or from the museum.

Both articles below give us a location (Goodnow place above the Bliss farm) but no description of the content.
