Robert Hudson was a Sheffield artist who predominately painted landscapes. In this painting, Hudson depicts an autumnal day in Endcliffe Woods (now known as Endcliffe Park). In the style of Romantic painters, natural elements take prominence to indicate humankind’s place in creation. The russet-haired figure in the centre and the suggestion of distant buildings in the background on the far left are dominated by the stony banks of the Porter Brook and the vertical lines of the tree trunks.
