  1. What a nice post. With summer over, I have finally greeted fall with open arms and the joys of it...wrapping in warm blankets, the taste of a warming liquor, candles light. I really enjoyed the art of John Atkinson Grimshaw. All the works had me creating a story for each one. I love art that makes you wonder what spirits may live there, and what history went on in them.

  2. There was a bit of a Grimshaw feeling about London this evening.

  3. No contest.... I'll have seconds of some Grimshaw!
    A fleeting mindset, perhaps, but I feel I could stroll into any of his scenes and feel totally at home.

  4. They are all beautiful. Enjoyed this post so much.

  5. Excellent selections on a favorite theme --autumn has a light unlike any other season.

  6. You picked some terrific examples of autumnal paintings. The Grimshaw works have a deliciously eerie atmosphere about them, and the Cropseys are kind of romantic. The ones by Wysocki remind me of folk art with an "off-kilter" perspective.
