The present work is a study for a 29 x 36 in. oil painting of the same title (Private Collection).
Reynolds Beal inscribed on the reverse of the present work:
"Haley Lever saw the oil painting I made from this sketch and decided this was the place he wanted to live--on his return from England--but could not find the place when he went to New Rochelle with his wife.
Geoffrey Parsons said to me when I was staying with him and Carle--'Why don't you make your paintings like your [studies]'--Your sketches and your esthetic--very beautiful--full of life--but your paintings look like the work of an old man with a velvet jacket + clay pipe etc. Following his advice I changed my style."
Please note this lot is the property of a private collector.
