Paintbox Leaves: Autumnal Inspiration from Cole to Wyeth: N.C. Wyeth, Robert Reid, Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Worthington Whittredge
Paintbox Leaves: Autumnal Inspiration from Cole to Wyeth is an exhibition at the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, NY that features some prime examples of American landscape painting from the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The exhibit explores the fascination artists have had with the glories of the American landscape in Autumn, described by Thomas Cole as quoted on the site:

There is one season when the American forest surpasses all the world in gorgeousness, that is the autumnal; — then every hill and dale is riant in the luxury of color — every hue is there, from the liveliest green to deepest purple from the most — golden yellow to the intensest crimson.

The online exhibit page lists several of the works, each one in the list linked to an image and descriptive text.

Paintbox Leaves: Autumnal Inspiration from Cole to Wyeth is on display until January 16, 2011.
