Sunny Autumn Day by George Inness

Oil on canvas, approximately 32 x 42 in. (81 x 106 cm). Link is to the Cleveland Museum of Art, which has the original in its collection and offers both a zoomable and downloadable version of the image.

It’s easy to see the visual drama of the light and dark areas of the composition, but like may of Inness’ paintings from this period of his career, an important part of the magic is in the relationship of the soft and hard edges.

Happy Autumnal Equinox!
