"Painted in 1940 in the studio from the canvas Down an August Road. Composition similar with buildings left out and coloring changed from summer to that of early fall. Made first for Gussie Borun (who owns the house at Halifax) of Beverly Hills, California, (through Harold Grieve) and sent out to California for Mrs. Borun to see, but she didnít care for it so it came back to me".
To the right, is an image of where RSW cut this canvas down after a critic criticized the piece
for having two focal points.
RSW went on to sell the piece, however, never re-signed his name which was removed in his cropping.
