Chill October by John Everett Millais

Oil on canvas, 55.5 x 73. 5 inches, 1870

Above is a painting by Millais that really captures the fall season. I hope you enjoy it.

Today, I came across a painting identification contest on the Art Renewal website. You can win $1000 if you correctly identify the artist of the painting shown below. Follow the link to enter to your guess.
Update:  The painting above has been identified. It's a detail of William Bouguereau's Orientale a La Grenade.


  1. Very nice!! I can actually imagine the wind blowing through the trees when I look at this painting. Millais was an amazing artist. ;-)

  2. I love this painting too. The painting makes me feel like I'm in that environment.
