Autumn Dusk, Red Rock Variation: Lake Superior Landscape
In this painted landscape, George Morrison used layered brushstrokes, subdued colors, and textures to depict the shores of Lake Superior during the autumn season. The top third of the work is painted with gray and light blue pigment while the lower portion is covered with overlapping strokes of green, orange, purple, and blue. The painting is divided by a horizon line a third from the top.
