Autumn in Vermont1951 by Theodore 'Ted' Kautzky

This painting was published as the cover of the November 1951 issue of "Reader's Digest." In this farmyard scene, Kautzky has portrayed a young man strolling towards his barns and silo, while a Tom turkey and its mate look on. A silhouette of the Green Mountains serves as a backdrop, while the stark trunks of massive trees, a characteristic element in many of Kautzky's paintings, define the foreground with an intricate pattern of shadows.
