Falling for Fall

Wilson Irvine's painting The Stone Bridge

An exceptional Wilson Irvine of a stone bridge in Old Lyme, CT.

I love fall, and by fall I’m referring to places where the leaves change. Apologies to those of you residing in LA or Miami Beach – but if the leaves don’t change, it isn’t really fall in my humble opinion.

We’ve had the pleasure of owning many works that reflect upon this season from the eyes and paintbrushes of artists we know and love. I’ve pulled together a few highlights from our archives and current collection to get you in the mood for the  fleeting and ethereal changes of autumn. If you are one of those folks who live where the leaves don’t turn I invite you to enjoy fall vis-à-vis these canvases.

"Autumn Moonrise by Walter Launt Palmer"

Walter Launt Palmer’s striking “Autumn Moonrise”. Quintessential Fall!

For me fall is full of the nostalgia of events which come with the changing season – tailgating at football games, just-picked apples, plump pumpkins, and crisp, starry nights with a nip in the air.

"Fall painting of Sloatsburg, New York by Edith Cockcroft"

Edith Cockcroft paints the changing season in Sloatsburg, NY.

Fall is also about Mother Nature the artist painting an infinitely changing picture for us to see and reflect upon. So get your rakes and scarves out…and fall for Fall!

"Painting entitled Hudson River from Hastings by Jasper Cropsey"

J.F. Cropsey paints a Hudson River scene.

Take a look, reflect upon changes, and enjoy those crisp fall apples!
