Painting based on the treatment of South Carolina in autumn by Thomas Wolfe
Around them, above them, below them - for the living and shining air of autumn, from the embrowned autumnal earth, from the great shapes of the hills behind them with their molten mass of colour - dull browns, rich bitter reds, dark bronze, and mellow yellow - from the raw crude clay of the piedmont earth and the great brown stubble of the cotton fields - from a thousand impalpable and unutterable things, there came this glorious breath of triumph and delight.
