About Chill October

The artwork titled “Chill October” was created by the artist John Millais in 1870. It is an oil on canvas painting belonging to the Realism art movement. With dimensions of 186.7 x 141 cm, the genre of this artwork is landscape. Presently, it is housed in a private collection.

The artwork depicts a tranquil autumnal scene rich in warm and muted tones that suggest the changing season. A body of water reflects the soft sky and is framed by foliage on either side. In the foreground, tall grasses and reeds, tinged with golden hues of fall, gently sway, giving a textured foreground that contrasts with the calm water. Clusters of trees, partially submerged or positioned along the water’s edge, show the artist’s careful observation of nature and highlight the peaceful coexistence between land and water. Birds can be spotted in the sky, enhancing the sense of a fleeting moment captured in time. Shadow and light fluidly interact across the canvas, creating a sensitive depiction of atmosphere and time typical of Millais’s approach to landscape painting.
