N.B. Elizabeth Wentworth Roberts moved to Concord, Massachusetts, around 1908, where she shared a house with her lifelong companion Grace Keyes. The house, on Estabrook Road, still exists. Roberts and fellow Concordian Daniel Chester French were instrumental in starting the Concord Art Association in 1916. Roberts frequently used Concord as the setting for her landscapes, which is the case for this painting.
