Jasper Cropsey: Interpreting Nature


Called “America’s painter of autumn,” Jasper Cropsey (1823-1900) is best known for his stunning depictions of fall foliage in the American landscape. As one of the leading members of the art movement known as the Hudson River School, Cropsey was greatly influenced by Thomas Cole as the paintings in this publication demonstrate. Published to accompany the 2006 exhibition at the Thomas Cole Historic Site, this catalogue includes two essays about the artist and a transcription of the wonderful letter that Cropsey writes to his wife in which he describes his visit to Cole’s studio.
