Today we have a new Past/Present post to share, of beautiful fall foliage. With our mild- tempered fall, the trees in the the Washington area still have many of their vibrant and colorful leaves. It is a real joy to be surrounded by trees that are bursting with such color- rich reds, bright yellows, and lovely shades of deep green and orange fill up the horizon. We think these two prints, one by early 20th century woodcut master Gustave Baumann and the other by contemporary NY artist Richard Sloat, capture the beauty of this long fall season. Hope you enjoy!
