Arts Everyday Living: Down the Pathway of Art—Walks through Autumn Splendor, Spring Rain

Michal Gorstkin-Wywiorski, Park in Autumn, c. 1900, oil on canvas, National Museum in Warsaw, Poland


The glory of autumn color often passes quickly, immortalized above by Polish artist Michal Gorstkin-Wywiorski (1861-1926). While in the landscape below by American master Theodore Clement Steele (1847-1926), the trees are now bare, reflecting the change of seasons, perhaps the coming of spring. In both works of art, though, our eye is drawn down a pathway, following the progress of the women, one with an umbrella, the other with what looks like her dog.
