Frederick J. Mulhaupt was known as the “Dean of the Cape Ann School” because of his extraordinary ability to capture the experience and atmosphere of the Gloucester harbor and its’ surrounding countryside. While the artist has been acclaimed for his busy maritime scenes, his depictions of the bucolic area surrounding the Gloucester Harbor also won him critical acclaim. He spent considerable time drawing outdoors, and his large paintings were clever reconstructions of scenes based upon these sketches. High Autumn is an excellent example of Mulhaupt’s Autumn scenes which was one of the artist’s favorite subjects. In this work we see how he beautifully depicts the magic of the autumn and the faceted light and colors that this season so uniquely provides.
