Although Reynolds has worked in a completely abstract style since 1960, he initially built his reputation as a landscape painter. Summer was painted between the end of August and the last week of September 1954 and is one of four works on the theme of the Seasons painted by Reynolds that year. Spring is in the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia and Winter is in the Fleischmann Collection, Pittsburgh, U.S.A. Autumn is in a private collection in Britain.
