Jasper F. Cropsey (American, 1823-1900)


The setting sun, luminous mists, and tidy farm buildings present a romantic image of man and nature in harmony.

This canvas is an idealized composition that combines motifs from several different locales.

Cropsey was widely acclaimed for his autumn landscapes.
