Watercolor on paper
Fall Landscape is one of the first paintings Joseph Fiore created as a student shortly after his arrival in the fall of 1946. It is notable in showing the influence of the mountain setting that surrounded the college. While his later work would evolve into greater abstraction, even this representational work shows a movement toward the painting as pure form and color.
