Slide indicates image may be the work of Richard Averill Smith and the property of New York State Historical Association. The image, however, is identical to one appearing in Augusta Owen Patterson's American Homes of Today (1924) and credited to Mattie Edwards Hewitt. In 1920 Hewitt published two views of Avalon, one of which may be this image. See citation in Richard G. Kenworthy, "Published Records of Italianate Gardens in America," Journal of Garden History 10, No. 1 (January-March 1990), p.53.
