Autumn 1860 - 1862
Artist: Frederick Sandys
* An ageing soldier, is depicted reclining on a river bank watched attentively by a woman and a child. The three figures appear to symbolise the three stages of life whilst the title, the setting sun and the ruin in the background focus on the last stage of old age and death. The painting is set in Norwich, where Sandys grew up, and the bridge is said to be Bishop's Bridge.
