RSW's Diary Comments

Winter Orchard, Sepia
Winter Orchard, Sepia

"Painted in March 1946. Of the studio easel window painted so many times. Similar to painting My Winter Window Shelf painted for Mr. and Mrs. Pettis in 1945 but with red geranium on the left instead of right, glass bird instead of glass apple, etc. Partially made from chalk drawing made for Miss Dow a few weeks earlier. Sold Fall of 1946 to Mr. and Mrs. Louis Rosenzweig, 95 Beacon St., Greenfield, Mass.


Additional Notes

Left is a close up of the apple in this painting. RSW was quite proud of his apples. He comments on his own ability to paint lamps and apples in comparison to two other artist (Paul CÚzanne and John Singer Sargent) in a letter found on the When Apples Are Ripe page or CLICK HERE for our Scrapbook page devoted to the discussion of apples in Woodward's paintings.
