Unnamed Gallery

The Unnamed Gallery has been completely revamped. No longer will we assign numbers to them. Instead, we have given them adopted temporary names using "Unnamed" as a prefix.

04-28-2018NEW FIND

The Hill Road

In an old archive we recently found a glossy black and white picture of a never before seen painting by the name "The" Hill Road. There is no relation to another painting by the same name so that painting will now be known as "A" Hill Road.

04-27-2018NEW NOTES

A Hill Road

Speaking of "A" Hill Road... when making the necessary revisions to the page noting "The" Hill Road, we realized that we can mark the spot where it was painted. Check out the Google Earth screen captures to see it has hardly changed in 70 years.

04-26-2018NEW PICS

August Horizon

Also found along with The Hill Road picture was a better, more detailed photograph of August Horizon! What is particularly spectacular is the magnificent sky painted by Woodward. We cannot wait for the day we get hold of a color image of this painting to see what colors he used.

04-25-2018NEW NOTES

Summer Valley

One of the newer features we have been adding to the artwork pages are topographical map graphics giving approximate vantage points of where RSW may have painted a particular painting. Well with Summer Valley we go a step further adding graphic AND a 1907 picture facing his location.


Awards & Recognitions

This page was corrected. A mix up between awards given by the Concord Art Association in 1920 and 1927 has been corrected. Wood Interior won "First Prize" in 1920 and April at Keach`s Farm won an honorable mention in 1927.

03-06-2018NEW PICS

The current owner of this painting recently contacted the website and provided access for us to photograph and we couldn't be more grateful and appreciative. Enjoy this wonderfully atmospheric painting painted from his sled.


Through Winter Woods

In light of what we have learned about Through Winter Pines we have revised this page to correlate with the most recent discoveries.

02-13-2018NEW PAINTING

Unnamed: Into the Woods

A friend of the website and Woodward owner notified us that this painting was up for sale and sold at auction in New Jersey by Nye & Co. Auctioneers. It is a previously unknown painting, clearly signed by RSW, however, the auctioneers failed to list its name, if it has one.


Auction Page

As a result of the sale of Unnamed: Into the Woods, we have updated the Auction Page to reflect the sale and its date and price ($7,500)


Exhibition Page

Going through a pile of loose pages and documents we located 5 previously unknown exhibitions for which RSW displayed his work particularly in Los Angeles, CA and Charolette, NC. Those exhibitions have been added to the Exhibition Page


Famous Owners Gallery

As we continue to sort through the provenance of RSW's paintings, his notes and papers, looking up various names and what have you... we continue to discover new owners of note. This Gallery has been updated to reflect the addition of 4 new occupants.

02-05-2018NEW PAGE

We have ALWAYS known that RSW painted for and sold a painting to Benny in 1939 for his brand new home in Beverly Hills. The deal was brokered through close RSW friend, former Hollywood set designer turned interior designer Harold Grieve.

RSW's Style: by Henry Haff

In 1970, the Deerfield Academy's American Studies Group published an illustrated catalogue featuring RSW, his life and work. In the catalogue, Deerfield student, Henry Haff, '71, wrote a compelling essay on RSW's style worthy of its own page. ENJOY!


Across the Winter River

It was recently discovered that this piece was left out of the new Purinton Hill Gallery. Furthermore, we were able to locate the approximate spot where RSW painted it and added to the page a topographic map pointing it out.

11-28-2017NEW PICS

A Quiet Village

We already had pretty good pictures of this wonderful chalk but when we had the opportunity to get a better picture, we do it. This drawing is quite remarkable. It is an excellent example of RSW's unique style. It also contains the MOST number of items favored by him and is included 5 theme galleries on the website.

11-26-2017NEW PICS

The Smithsonian Museum has recently revamped its entire website! And with that, they have updated the quality of their images which includes this sepia image of the painting.

11-24-2017NEW CHALK

Haystack From Wilmington

This chalk was recently located and is privately owned. We are hoping for better pictures, but for the time being we are thrilled to it return to the fold! There was a recently discovered Unfinished chalk of Haystack Mountain in Vermont but this piece is the only known completed one.

11-22-2017NEW CHALK

Along the Shaded Road

Recently located is this wonderful chalk which happens to look a lot like the road from which another Unfinished oil was done. The owner believes it is of Oxbow Road in Heath (MA) but if east or west is not known. None the less, it is terrific!

11-03-2017    FOUND: 17 Unfinished works of art in an old shipping crate , in an attic.


Unfinished Chalks & Oils

We added the Unfinished artwork to the bottom of Unnamed Gallery because technically, they are unnamed. It is unclear to us as to why RSW did not compete these pieces, whether it was time or dissatisfaction with the composition.

10-27-2017NEW PROFILE

Walter & Belle Smith

The Smiths may just be one of the most important people regarding Woodward's success as an artist. Famous collectors, they are known for giving their entire collection to the Springfield Library Association to start a museum. Mr. Smith would buy 4 of RSW's early paintings, the first museum to do so...

10-25-2017NEW PROFILE

Mrs. Pauline Everett

Equally important to RSW's career and legacy was Mrs. Everett who gave here entire collection of artwork to museums all across the country, including 8 Woodwards. Not much is know about her but we were able to scrounge up some stuff and learned RSW may have made a rare trip to NYC to meet her.

10-23-2017NEW ARCHIVE

1925 Fundraiser

This was a shocking discovery. In 1925, RSW friend, Dr. Lawrence Lunt sent a fundraising letter to Mrs. Belle Townsley Smith appealing for her to contribute funds to aid RSW who at the time... still feeling the effects of his disasterous Redgate fire in 1922 was not making his bills!

10-22-2017NEW ARCHIVE

Contentment Gift

In 1991, former soap actress, Virginia Dwyer Gorman, sought to give as a gift her Woodward painting Contentment to the Springfiled Museum of Fine Art along with her sister Jenny Lou.

Archives & Letters

Over the years of gathering information and reference material we have accumilated a number of letters and documents pertaining to RSW. We felt it was time to start a new gallery devoted solely to the papers.

Unnamed: Out of the Past

New pictures of a yet unnamed painting of the "Little Brown House" in Deerfield with the large elm in front.

New Theme Galleries

It has been a long time coming... we have revised the Theme gallery page by adding 9 new theme galleries!


03-11-2017NEW GALLERY!

Chalks & Crayons

Finally we have compiled a gallery of ALL the Chalk Drawings (Crayons & Charcoals) for those fans this art form. Woodward's drawing paintings are unique, in that, work in popular pastels is rare in the art world other than well known artist Georgia O'Keefe and just a handful of others.

03-11-2017NEW GALLERY!

Burning Autumn

What is a New England artist without spectacular autumn scenes? Here we compiled all of RSW's fall foliage paintings we have images for, including anything that show the beginning of fall.

03-11-2017NEW GALLERY!

Fences, Gates & Doors

While compiling the other list... the website staff began to notice a pattern. One, there were far more fences in paintings than we anticipated. Two, a lot of fences also featured interesting barn doors and/ or openings and finally... RSW did feature 'doors' in numerous paintings.

03-10-2017NEW GALLERY!

In Bloom

The beauty of nature is that things 'bloom' at different times throughout the spring and fall so rather than simply compile 'spring paintings' we pulled together every painting where we cound find something blooming.

03-10-2017NEW GALLERY!

Purinton Hill

One of the most iconic hills in all of Buckland, MA was the subject in numerous of paintings by Woodward but also made its way into others as a distant backdrop.

03-08-2017NEW GALLERY!

Snow On The Ground

The premise of this gallery, rather than simply featuring the 'winter' months, was to include any work of art that has snow on the ground whether it be late fall or early spring!

02-27-2017NEW GALLERY!

Stunning Skies

Big skies are a common theme in many landscape paintings and RSW was no exception. This gallery includes paintings by Woodward that featured the sky or used the sky to frame the landscape he painted.


Churches & Cemetery

There was one painting Woodward featured a cemetery and it sat alone in its own gallery. We have now merged that piece with the churches and included ALL pieces that show a church, even if it's just a steeple.


Scrapbook Gallery

We have reorganized our Scrapbook Gallery into 3 sections improving the viewer's experience in locating topics of interest. The sections are as follows- Stories & Essays, List & Archives and Tributes. Enjoy!

02-21-2017NEW STORY

Tale of Two Winters

This story is an attempt to show how difficult sorting out RSW's paintings of similar scenes and repeated use of similar names can cause fits for the website staff especially when Woodward stays consisted in name and content of one scene but not the other.

02-20-2017NEW PAGE

This page is an added bonus to those interested in the Southwick Place and classic home styles. Southwick holds true to the Gothic Revival style in the subdued and modest New England way. Built in 1850, it is one of the first Gothic Revival homes in area.

This page has been revised when it was discovered that Woodward may have posed for a picture in 1922 in front of the painting he may have possibly painted Rushing Brook in 1942. The photo is of poor quality but the features appear to line up.

01-18-2017PAGE REVISED

The Brook

Up until recently, it was believed that a painting Woodward posed for a picture in front of in 1922 was The Brook. However, in a handwritten note RSW specifically states that The Brook was painted in the "Clock Hollow' section of Buckland not matching the Diary Comments of Rushing Brook.
