About the Artwork

Childe Hassam, On the Porch (C.E.S. Wood's Porch, Portland, Oregon), 1904. Oil on linen canvas, 24 1/2 × 30 in. (62.2 × 76.2 cm). Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Promised gift of Bernard and Barbro Osher

Wherever Childe Hassam traveled, he produced a rich variety of works representing an extended autobiographical travelogue. In the summer of 1904, he spent two months in Portland, Oregon, where he installed a mural commission in the home of friend and patron Colonel Charles Erskine Scott Wood.

This affectionate view of daily life at the Wood family home combines Hassam’s facility for painting gardens and interiors. A woman sits on the porch, sewing at an elegant dining table topped by an arrangement of roses. A screen of greenery fills the background, appearing as an abstraction of leaves and dappled light. A note on the verso suggests that the sitter was Marian Greenough, a friend of Wood’s daughter who was also visiting Portland at this time.
