RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted prior to 1930. One of my early paintings of a subject matter I often used from my first studio Redgate which burned. A large one 36 x 40 of the same subject, or similar subject (but reversed) which I called Winter Pool. Mr. and Mrs. Robert T Lee of Manchester, Vt. own a larger panel of the same subject matter.”



Additional Notes

Boston Post, Thursday, Dec. 9, 1926

“There is rare beauty in the canvas called Evening Stream. The clear broad stream runs silently through deep quiet woods, which seem endless. Enchantment lurks in the dark fathomless pool in the foreground, while the forest of gaunt oaks holds promise of unknown delights.”


Below: is a side-by-side comparison of Winter Pool and Evening Stream. The subject is opposing sides of the same pond found behind RSW's first studio, Redgate. To enlarge the images, simply click on the pictures.
