Autumn
by Kirsteen McSwein




Overview -
An elegant gift book celebrating all the joys of autumn, spanning several centuries, and featuring a wide variety of works from the Tate collection

Following Tate's recent Winter publication, this new selection of works examines some of the most beautiful, transformative, and amusing expressions of the autumn season drawn from Tate's collection. Divided into key themes--"Fields of Gold," "A Bountiful Harvest," "Leisure," "Symbolism," "Bump in the Night," and "Abstraction"--this little book considers how the traditional season of harvest and falling leaves has influenced artists over centuries.
Works of art--including paintings, drawings, sculptures, illustrations, and installations--are punctuated by brief captions adding background detail or additional information about the art, the artists, and their subjects. Featured artists include Barbara Hepworth, Salvador Dal , John Singer Sargent, Paula Rego, and Edward Burra.
Sometimes traditional, sometimes contemporary, often beautiful, and occasionally telling, placed together these beautiful images create a fascinating journey through the visual portrayal of autumn in Western art.
