Bonus Information

Studio Window
Studio Window

Given the time period and that Woodward first started painting his infamous Window Paintings at the Hiram Woodward Studio we feel this piece is most likely from that studio which burned in July 1934.

However, it is equally difficult to determine which window he deemed the "south" window. His corner window from that studio faced west and south and was the subject of a couple known paintings (My Winter Shelf and The Window: Still Life and a Winter Scene) but there is one painting of just the south portion of the corner window found in Studio Window seen to the right.

We cannot say for certain Studio Window is of a similar subject matter as The South Window but it could be likely.
