SUMMARY

This work was acquired from the artist by the art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel on November 22, 1900. In January of the following year, it was exhibited at the solo exhibition of Pissarro held at the Galerie Durand-Ruel in Paris, and later in 1913, was exhibited at an exhibition at the Durand-Ruel Gallery in New York. Pissarro attempted to create a series of the Éragny landscapes depicting different aspects of an orchard shown with the changes of the four seasons. Christopher Lloyd commented on the artist’s attempt: “Like Monet at Giverny, Pissarro's examination of the rural spectacles that surrounded him was intense. He luxuriated in the changing temporal conditions and found the fogs, frosts and snow of winter or the vibrant warmth and lush verdure of summer equally rewarding. Pissarro also began to paint in series, restlessly altering his position or line of vision, but relying basically for his visual variety on the changing seasons or the divisions of the day.” Before his death, Pissarro defined his painting method, saying, “When I start a painting, the first thing I strive to catch is its harmonic form. Between this sky and this ground and this water, there is necessarily a link. It can only be a set of harmonies.” As seen in this work, the Éragny landscapes that Pissarro, a lifelong “pastoral painter,” produced in his final years were painted in accordance with this principle of harmonic form. In the painting, he is looking in a different direction than in his Spring..., and the red-brick roof and chimney of a farmhouse can be seen in the middle of the picture. However, as seen from the free speckled brushwork in the grasses, the detailed touches in the foliage of the trees, and the fluent brushstrokes in the sky, there is no change in his technique. What is significantly changed is the color palette. Compared to the fresh yellow-green ground, pale green leaves of the trees adorned with flowers, and limpid blue sky that are seen in the Spring..., the Autumn... depicts the ground tinged with the color of withered leaves, the dark green foliage, and the overcast cold gray sky, presenting the hues characteristic to the rather dry autumn.
