Jasper Francis Cropsey

59 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #2711
Realism   •   Jasper Francis Cropsey @ Wikipedia

Jasper Francis Cropsey was born in the agricultural Staten Island. As usual in many farmer families, Jasper had to help with the farm during the busy summer months, and only visited the school in the winter. Overall, of weak constitution and often ill for him, the continuation of family business was excluded.

Cropsey moved to New York and he became an architect. The fulfillment of architectural projects did not materialize and his designs were framed on the edge of landscape sketches. His employer encouraged Jasper to try watercolor and oil.

For the first landscape depictions, Cropsey chose the landscape of New Jersey and Greenwood Lake. Especially the Greenwood Lake appears as a recurrent motif in his works. As an artist, he pursued the goal of depicting American nature in its uniqueness. Cropsey was particularly interested in the depiction of the atmosphere, weather and clouds and the changing seasons. His love of nature made him a major representative of the Hudson River School.

His most famous work Fall - On the Hudson River dedicated to the favorite season of Jasper Francis Cropsey whose lush color scheme reflects the spectrum of the Indian Summer. © Meisterdrucke
