About Autumn Trees

The artwork “Autumn Trees” by Egon Schiele was created in 1911, employing oil on canvas as the medium. As an exemplification of the Expressionist movement, this piece measures 79.5 by 80 cm and is categorized as a landscape. Currently, “Autumn Trees” is held in a private collection.

Schiele’s composition captures the essence of fall through the depiction of slender trees with leaves that are sparse and transitioning in color, resonating with the typical autumnal palette. The background reveals a minimalist portrayal of the sky, executed with wide, open brushwork that contrasts with the detailed and earthy-toned depiction of the ground line. The lines of the horizon are drawn with visible blue and red strokes, which add a sense of depth and form to the painting. Foremost, the trees stand as the central subjects, their branches reaching upwards in a display that is characteristic of Schiele’s distinct, expressive style, where form is imbued with emotional resonance.
