Famous Fall Paintings

The Birch Wood – Gustav Klimt

Fall is such a beautiful season of the year. The leaves start to change color and the weather cools down. This makes for some great painting inspiration. Fall paintings are a great way to celebrate the changing seasons. Artists often use warm colors to convey the feeling of nostalgia and harvest. The use of orange, reds, and yellows is common in these paintings.

It is difficult to imagine a painting of fall without its signature reds, oranges, yellows, golds, and browns. Fall is also considered one of the best times to view nature up close while hunting for leaves or acorns. And autumnal colors are deeply connected to our emotions. Many artists choose this time of year to depict landscapes with saturated hues that symbolize a sense of change or slowing down after the long summer days and warmer nights have passed.

Let us share some beautiful fall paintings from a variety of different artists. Some you might have already seen and others maybe not.
