It is unclear when Anne Goldthwaite painted "Well with Red Rooster," but it is a subject she might have seen almost anywhere in central Alabama in the early part of the twentieth century. Chickens were an important commodity for food and eggs, and working-class and farm families alike throughout the South often left them to roam free in yards. Goldthwaite’s eclectic Alabama subject matter ranges from scenes of Montgomery streets, with automobiles and mule carts depicted side by side, to figure studies and portraits of family members and acquaintances. As a daughter of the South, she had a unique affinity for the environment and its people.
