RSW's Diary Comments

"Painted in 1938. One of my most loved canvases, but one I didn't own long. Painted of Griswold's Sugar House and tall maples from my west bedroom window, directly across the street. Bought at Manchester by Mr. and Mrs. P.H. B. Frelinghuysen of Manchester, Palm Beach and Morristown, N. J."

As of November 2013, we know that Mr. F. B. Frelinghuysen had purchased 9 other Woodward paintings and 2 chalks, they are as follows:


The Griswold House is a historical landmark across the road from Woodward's Southwick Home & Studio.


While the maples still stand to this day, the sugar house no longer does.
