According to Les and Sue Fox, the present work depicts the artist's view of Daniel Garber's cottage across from her home and studio on the Delaware River in Lumberville, Pennsylvania. Daniel Garber was Coppedge's teacher at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1918 and 1919. As neighbors, they frequently painted each other's homes, often capturing the same scene in a different light. Garber owned two homes in Lumberville, Cuttalossa, his larger estate, and Bittersweet the home pictured in the present work.
