NOTE:
According to the aforementioned Catalogue Raisonné, "Although the artist did not indicate a location for this work in his records, his son, John Franklin Garber, noted that it depicted his father's cottage (Bitter Sweet) in Lumberville, Pennsylvania, not far from Cuttalossa. The artist first captured in a photograph the image of the tree shadow on the side of the building, composed very similarly to the completed painting. In the canvas, however, he eliminated most of the small trees behind the shed and greatly developed the opposite shore of the river. A figure was added at the wood pile, and other small additions and deletions were made as well." (p. 160).
