“Miss M. Bradish Titcomb is an artist who shows not only the influence of her New England masters, Tarbell and Benson, but who further demonstrates a New England conscience in her loyalty to line and accurate drawing.”
 “Five American Women Painters.” Kansas City Star, November 15, 1914.

In Morning at Boxwood, painted around 1910 and exhibited in early 1911 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Mary Bradish Titcomb renders a group of women engaged in sewing and reading on the terrace of Boxwood Manor, the stately mansion once owned by Richard Sill Griswold, Jr. and his wife Rosa. Located just a mile down the road from his cousin Florence Griswold, whose home served as the de facto center of the art colony, Richard and Rosa operated a girls’ school at Boxwood from 1890 until 1907, and during the summers began letting rooms to the many visiting artists. Upon the passing of both Griswolds by 1907, the school closed but the home remained an inn for the Lyme colony painters and it is likely where Titcomb stayed during her time there. In addition to Morning at Boxwood, she created at least three known large paintings of the home’s elegant columned terrace and grounds between 1905 and 1913.
