About

Jasper Cropsey’s depiction of backwoods America celebrates the romantic myth of frontier life with little regard to the often harsh reality. Though his NCMA painting is derived from sketches made in the White Mountains of northern New Hampshire, the picture was painted while Cropsey was living in London.
