Comments in a notebook by RSW:

"Painted in 1932 of birch trees. Hung in dining room at Myles Standish Hotel in Boston in March of 1932..."
"...Dark woodland pocket thru fringe of birch trees in September."


Additional Notes

Of course, there is an obvious error in these notes, Woodward could not have painted this in September of 1932 and have hung it the summer prior to painting it! So we believe it was painted in 1931 and hung in 1932.


The above image is of Unnamed #15 which we believe may very well be Woodland Edge, however, we could not see the name on the back stretcher because when the painting was reframed, the framer, glued protective backboard to the frame. We did not want to try and pull the backboard away and damage anything. For more please see... Unnamed #15


We thank its current owner for their generousity, in both time and access to this wonderful painting. We couldn't be more appreciative.
