Greenwood Lake (1872) by Jasper F. Cropsey
This painting is entitled Greenwood Lake. It depicts a fall scene looking from a small inlet north into New York State with several cows in the foreground and blue sky with clouds. There are hills on both sides which are covered with fall foliage and a felled tree lies across the water in center foreground.
Greenwood Lake is an interstate lake approximately seven miles long, straddling the border of New Jersey and New York. It is located in West Milford, New Jersey and Greenwood Lake, New York.
Greenwood Lake's connection to Ringwood, New Jersey is its history of being dammed up ca. 1765 by Peter Hasenclever of The American Company to increase the size of the lake for water power used downstream at the Long Pond Ironworks.
Cropsey, Jasper F.
