Arthur Negus Fuller's (1879-1945) print recalls a period in Deerfield's colonial past when women used bake ovens. The fireplace depicted was in Justin Hitchcock's 1779 house, located next door to the artist's studio on Albany Road in Deerfield, Massachusetts. Although posing as a colonial woman, the silhouette of Fuller's model is not as full as an 18th century woman would be and instead of the three-quarter length sleeves that were common during the colonial period, this wispy dress has long sleeves and white cuffs of the early 20th century.
