John W. Casilear, Autumn Landscape
See the Summer companion piece at Woodmere here.
Casilear's images are often tranquil and harmonious. Here he paints an expansive landscape with a clearly perceived depth. Foreground elements are represented in great detail, while broad areas of sky and earth in mid- and background are unified by glowing light and atmosphere. Tonal harmonies and deliberately muted hues create a scene of serenity.
