Autumn, Jacob de Wit, 1740

Autumn, Jacob de Wit, 1740

oil on canvas, h 109cm × w 110.5cm × w 8.6kg More details

This overdoor, like Winter and Summer elsewhere in this gallery, came from the house of Cornelis Hop in the Nieuwe Doelenstraat in Amsterdam. All three pieces still have their original surrounds. De Wit illustrated Autumn by alluding to the grape harvest. Three putti play with grapevines, a kylix or drinking cup, and a thyrsus, the pinecone-tipped staff of Bacchus, the god of wine.

On display in room 1.6
