Some interesting works seen at auction

Landscape by John Linnell. Note how beautifully the leaves flow along broad gestures, and how boldly the autumnal colors stand out amongst all other landscape painters. There is an unconventional sense of wonder imbued in the landscape that reminds me of A Forest at Dawn with a Deer Hunt, ca. 1635, by Peter Paul Rubens.
