“Painted in 1924, two years after Gorbatov emigrated, Golden autumn is an evocative depiction of rural Russia, with its overwhelming natural beauty and tranquillity. At the height of his success abroad and participating regularly in international art exhibitions, including those at the Hague in 1924 and in Pittsburgh in 1925, Gorbatov achieved both popularity and acclaim for his almost architectural landscapes that were masterfully constructed with key elements, most recognisably the spindly, curved trunks of native birches, topped with fiery heads of gold.”
