The autumn landscape with a tree standing nearby represents a harmonious work with the typical handwriting of František Kaván, the author of numerous depictions of the changes in the Czech landscape during the changing seasons. The autumn landscape belongs to the author's quieter period. Kaván works influenced by his studies in the landscape studio of Julius Mařák, where he joined in 1889, he lives very modestly and solitarily, and he soon excels in realistic depictions of the landscape above his classmates. Under the influence of the group around the Modern Revue, in 1895 he temporarily deviated from realism and switched to symbolism and decadence. On the back exhibition label from Hlinsko 1941, no.94.
