Alfred Sisley "Autumn Banks of the Seine near Bougival"

I chose this picture because it really depicts the beauty of the fall, my favorite season. He uses color to convey autumn. The band of trees along the shoreline are ablaze with red leaves. The reflection of this color on the water is only slightly muted, contrasting with the pale blue water that repeats the color of the sky.Overall it is a beautiful painting.
