Description  
John Singer Sargent, like many portrait painters, sought escape in landscape. 'Autumn Leaves' exudes technique and colour sense, the white dresses and hats counterbalance the profusion of green and gold autumn foliage. The long dresses capture the light and atmosphere perfectly of a summer's day. You can smell the fresh summer grass in all the paintings and feel the dap¬p¬led sun on the women’s dres¬ses. The picture exhibits a lushness and freshness without exploiting or overdoing it. The painting is now housed at the National Gallery Victoria in Australia.
