As I noted in my last essay, this year in Moscow our Golden Autumn is a little bit less golden than usual. Thankfully, fall being arguably the most beloved season of Russian artists, it has been captured in all its glory by many a painter. Which rendition from this lineup is your favorite?
Autumn Day in the Lefortovo Garden, by Ekaterina Junge.
Backwoods, by Arkady Rylov.
Sunday, by Alexander Kosnichev.
Ravine, by Andrey Schilder.
Road in the Forest, by Nikolay Ge.
In the Forest in Autumn, by Isaac Levitan.
Ryabina (Ashberry), by Igor Grabar.
The Last Aster Flowers, by Stanislav Zhukovsky.

Loving them all 🙂
Oh that’s a cop-out 😛
OK, the fourth one, then, (“Sunday”) – it’s just so WARM 🙂
That’s what today looks like 🙂
Hard to pick a fave but I’ll go with the first one!
Yay! Some love for lady artists 🙂
“Sunday” is my favorite.
It’s as idealized a version of an autumn day here as it gets 🙂
And who doesn’t love idealized, and autumn?
I like Autumn Day, Sunday, and The Last Aster Flowers. I’m into colours!
Wow, the Sunday painting isnt even a classic! Noted…
I’m not alone when I say that I just want to walk along that lane!
I’ve been really into gold lately so I’m going to go with the first one – I love the leaves hanging over the water. but, really, this whole post is just a bunch of beautiful. 😉
OOOH, how is the gold theme manifesting itself? I am very curious to see!
aaaactually. i just learned how to do that gold foil thing in photoshop so i’ve been making cards with it. this is a little hush hush… http://www.minted.com/designer/anniemontgomery
You are SO cute!
Ryabina is marvelous!
Let me guess, you’re into late impressionists overall?
