Autumn is Upon Us

Fall is here. For this Art Wednesday we’ll pair art with quotes from literature focused on autumn. “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus

Claude Monet, Autumn on the Seine at Argenteuil, 1873


“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – L.A. Montgomery

Edward Hopper, October on Cape Cod, 1946


“My sorrow, when she's here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.” – Robert Frost

Egon Schiele, Four Trees, 1917


“They do not say in their hearts, ‘Let us fear the Lord our God, who gives the rain in its season, the autumn rain and the spring rain, and keeps for us the weeks appointed for the harvest.’” –Jeremiah 5:24

Georgia O’Keeffe, Autumn Leaves, 1924


“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.” – John Donne

Gustav Klimt, Birch Forest I, 1902


“He found himself wondering at times, especially in the autumn, about the wild lands, and strange visions of mountains that he had never seen came into his dreams.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

Jean-Francois Millet, Haystacks Autumn, 1873


“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” – George Elliot

Paul Gauguin, Landscape in Arles near the Alyscamps, 1888


“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light.” – Hemingway

Happy Autumn, everyone. “At no other time does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea…” – Rainer Maria Rilke

Wassily Kandinsky, Autumn in Murnau, 1908
