Artist Series - Day 231: Jasper Francis Cropsey

image


On my way back from #GenCon, I spent a day in Chicago, and, of course, checked out the Art Institute of Chicago.  There, in the "American Artists pre-1900" wing, I rediscovered today's artist.  One of the first Hudson River school painters, and highly influential on a host of artists since.
