Even though Frederic Edwin Church’s most famed work revolves around either the portrayal of the magnificent American landscapes or that of exotic views of the Americas, in the time between the painting of those grandiose pieces the artist still produced a few works of great beauty and delicate technique. Created sometime around 1865, this oil on canvas is a rather interesting example of a painting which embodies the culmination of a series of studies to produce a proof of concept for a particular style or, in this case, a slightly different approach to the use of light and composition.
To wit, this piece, recently auctioned into the hands of private collectors, is one of the most important in a long line of similar drafts, drawings, and paintings in which Church studies the incidence of light on the orange tinted Autumn leaves, an element which will see heavy use throughout his career. Indeed, the way the light plays on the vibrant colors of the Autumn season seems to be a staple of the Hudson River School painters, and there was a particular preference for producing pieces with that subject matter, almost as if it served as the litmus test of the artist’s skill, technique, and aesthetic sensibility.
On his take on the favorite subject, we can see both a demonstration of Church’s stylistic characteristics as well as a few departures from his usual technique which make this piece rather unique within the artist’s body of work. Chief among the former is the use of light, represented here by the bright beacon that comes down through the opening in the otherwise dense foliage, bathing the whole scene in a golden glow. Of the latter, we could mention the brushwork, which here we can see is much less defined than in his other works, and, to an extent, the choice of subject matter, since Church was wont to portray landscapes with more gravitas than a mere snapshot of Autumn in some undisclosed location somewhere in the state of Virginia.
Having considered this, we could perhaps understand this outlier of Church’s work less as an effort in dilettantism undertaken between more important paintings, but instead as a proof of concept and test of skill by the artist, who uses it to demonstrate his range and talent.
