In "Autumn Landscape" of 1897, a slow undulating stream seperates the viewer from the opposite shore, where two figures stroll beneath the towering deciduous trees. A riot of multi-colored foliage fills the upper canvas and is cropped by its edges, giving the effect of a protective "umbrella" of shimmering leaves.
