The present work depicts at center Rebecca Glatts' house, which was across the Brandywine River from where the artist lived in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Wyeth was drawn to the early architecture of her home and its three chimneys and painted it in another watercolor titled Rebecca Glatts House in 1944 (Private Collection).
