"Painted in 1938. Brilliant red and orange tangle of Oct. maples in fall color. Small spots of blue sky showing in places, a few large gray maple boles and slanting stone wall against sloping banks of foreground, topped by red sumac. Bought from my exhibition at Williston Academy, Easthampton, around 1939 or 40 by Beulah Bondi (close friend) the noted stage and screen actress of 6660 Whitely Terrace, Hollywood, California."
The early section of Robert Strong Woodward's diary was written in the 1940's from memory. The dates quoted in the diary above are incorrect. The painting was probably painted in 1936 and sold 1937.
