The Cycle of the Seasons: Autumn and Winter Scenes at Heckscher Museum of Art

October 26, 1999 - January 30, 1999


Albert Bierstadt's Autumn Landscape, Thomas Moran's Autumn Foliage, Emile Walters' In the Depth of Winter, Paul George's Winter Landscape, Guy Carlton Wiggins' Snowed Under in New York and Ernest Albert's The Brook in Winter are among the rich and diversified seasonal images which comprise The Cycle of the Seasons: Autumn and Winter Scenes, the Heckscher Museum of Art's new show which focuses on scenes both sumptuous and spare of the change of seasons - the vibrant colors of fall through to the dramatic landscapes of winter.

The works, drawn from the Heckscher's permanent collection, encompass a three-century span of images of fall and winter. They vary from a 17th-century Dutch work depicting winter in Holland to Hudson River landscapes which capture the glories of autumn to 20th-century abstractions of winter scenes.
