Arthur Streeton captures in this work an Autumn scene in early Eaglemont. The orchard is believed to have been part of the original Mount Eagle estate, and the house to the far right, that of Charles Davies. The house was situated in what is now Summit Drive, Eaglemont, and at this time was home to Arthur Streeton. The work’s alternative title ‘Autumn’, was reportedly inspired by lines such as 'To bend with apples the mossed cottage-trees And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core’ from the poem ‘To Autumn’ by the English poet, John Keats.
