Jasper Francis Cropsey Biography

(b Rossville, Staten Island, New York, 1823; d Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, 1900) American Painter. A Hudson River School painter, Cropsey remains perhaps America’s most celebrated painter of autumn, and his reputation is firmly based upon his depictions of that season. Cropsey received his initial training as an apprentice to the architect Joseph Trench in 1837. Due to his immediate success and proven talents, he was provided with the time and materials to pursue his interest in art. He was taught by and encouraged by Edward Maury, William T. Ranney and William Sidney Mount. Cropsey exhibited his first painting at the National Academy of Design in 1843 and became a member the following year. After a period of extensive travel to Europe, Cropsey returned to the United States in 1849, opened a studio in New York City and traveled between New Hampshire, Vermont and New York to paint and teach. Cropsey and his wife moved to England and opened a studio in London in 1856 where his American landscapes proved to be very popular with British audiences. In 1860, he created his culminating “Autumn of the Hudson River,” which remains a landmark in the history of American art. Returning to America in 1863, he completed architectural designs including one for his own mansion in Warwick, New York. Although he continued to produce compelling landscapes throughout the 1870s and 1880s, his work was progressively supplanted in the market by the inroads of European modern aesthetics, particularly Impressionism. Despite his later financial troubles, Cropsey was satisfied by the ample inspiration he found in the American landscape without looking to his younger colleagues for direction. The consistency in his art from 1860 to 1879 speaks to that confidence in his mature style. (Credit: Phillips de Pury & Company, New York, American Art, May 21, 2002, lot 27)
