I don’t know about you guys, but I love autumn. The colours, the weather, the food, I love everything about this season. And as this is the first week of autumn where I live, I want to share with you some of my favourite paintings created by women artists who were inspired by this magical season.
I think it is a very inspiring season too, almost magical with all the changes and preparations for the winter that is to come. I know I am not the only one, many artists have found inspiration in the magic of the autumn too: some in the landscapes with fallen leaves, others in the beautiful and warm colours, and they all have created wonderful works of art.
Italian painter Rosalba Carriera painted a personification of the season, she imagined Autumn as a young lady, almost a nymph or a Greek goddess.
Other artists were more inspired by the animals in the nature, as it’s the case of Rosa Bonheur.
And of course there are lovely landscapes, as those of Zinaida Serebriakova:
Others were more inspired by the colours of the sky.
Or of the leaves and trees as Georgia O’Keeffe.
I hope you like it!
