Follower of Antoine Watteau French
Not on view
One of a set of panels (22.225.1–.6) which probably formed a set of decoration for a room. Each panel represents two months of the year, depicting astrological signs and occupations appropriate to the seasons. September and October are represented by a fruit-picking scene, above, and a peasant with a bottle and wineglass, celebrating the grape harvest, below.
