A pioneer of stained-glass design, John La Farge created this allegorical representation,
Autumn Scattering Leaves, as a window design for a private home on Long Island. After his patrons rejected this composition in favor of a figure in classical garb, La Farge exhibited the lyrical watercolor as an independent work.
