Fall really is my favorite season. Even in Fort Worth the changing color palete is lovely. Here are works from our collection that include three of the trees that really say "Texas" to me.
The tree that makes cooks rush to their grills:
Laura Gilpin, [Mesquite Tree and Flowers], Apr. 1916. Gelatin silver print. @1979, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Bequest of the artist.
Our state tree:
Blanche McVeigh, Pecan Grove, aquatint and etching, 1932.
Finally, our local go-to evergreen:
Laura Gilpin, Live Oak Tree, Gelatin silver print, 1946, @1979, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Gift of the artist.
