George Inness (American, 1825–1894), September Noon, oil on canvas, 1892. 30 x 45 in. Gallery 29B

One of the most prolific 19th-century American landscape painters, George Inness endowed his late works such as September Noon with a poetic, almost abstract character more visionary and evocative than “realistic.” Here a single figure clutching a bouquet of wild flowers strolls through a dreamy forest landscape.

    Where are the rest of the Inness paintings that the museum used to have in that gallery? Wasn’t there a fall painting?
