This oil on canvas, Autumn Landscape, by António Cândido da Cunha, disciple of João Correia, Jean-Paul Laurens, and Benjamin Constant, and sponsored by King D. Carlos, distinguished himself as elegiac painter, fond of landscapes at dusk, full of the melancholy from the surrounding shadows or the tragic of the agonizing Sun.
These majestic scenes of dusk burst lyricism in their golden and silvery paints, and he is considered as Ultra Romanticist. Some of the places he selected to represent were landscapes in Águeda, among other towns.
Hence, this work represents the peak of his entire remarkable predicates as Ultra Romanticist painter.
