Autumn Woods - Description

Autumn Woods is a landscape painted by German-American Romanticist Albert Bierstadt. It was created in the year 1886. This piece, an oil painting on canvas, captures the radiance of autumn in New York where Bierstadt lived and worked as a member of the Hudson River School of painters. Autumn Woods shows a pond draped in warm tones of red, orange and brown against a creamy peach sky. Woods surround the pond from all directions. This piece embodies the technique and composition of the Romantic period well, offering a place where the viewer can escape into nature from wherever the painting might be hung from. It is a serene setting at first from an artist whose brushes normally strived to create a sense of wildness and sublimity in nature. This painting depicts the end of growth, a forest waiting to hibernate for a long frigid winter. It is this notion that changes the mood of this painting to a slightly more serious tone. The viewer is invited to imagine the pangs of winter in this location and also the beauty of the coming season. These are the last warm colors to grace the treetops and skyline for many months. Soon gnarly trunks and scraggly treetops will cut the grey, somber skyline while the ground will be covered beneath a blanket of ice and snow until spring returns color.
