Additional Notes

Springfield Union, Feb. 1, 1921, Miller's 11th Art Exhibit

"Robert Strong Woodward’s mountain laurel picture of upland sunshine and blossom, overlooking a delectable valley, with glimpses of red roof, blue water and purple distance as factors of a charming scene, shows a facile brush that is not only close but very true to nature in one of his most colorful moods.”


Springfield Union, Feb. 1921

“The picture he is now showing here is a hillside in the Shelburne hills, in full bloom with laurels. The treatment is free and liberal, a vivid impression, and the atmosphere is fresh and inspiring. Such rare newcomers should receive a hearty welcome.”
