Note: This painting retains what appears to be its original frame, probably made by the artist.

The strong decorative qualities of the painting illustrated here may recall Arthur Meltzer's six-year apprenticeship with the Ford and McNutt Stained Glass Company in Minneapolis. According to a relative of the artist, the barn in this painting was located near Newtown, a short distance from Meltzers’ Bucks County home.
