Upper Hudson (1871) by Jasper F. Cropsey

Dublin Core

Title

Upper Hudson (1871) by Jasper F. Cropsey

Description

During the eighteenth century, the river valley and its inhabitants were the subject and inspiration of Washington Irving. By the nineteenth century, the area inspired the Hudson River School of landscape painting to draw in concepts of an American pastoral style through environmental conservation and awareness for the wilderness.
Upper Hudson depicts a scene of the Upper Hudson River in the fall with a hazy sky with sun shining through haze (Luminist quality). There is a sailboat in distance on right near shoreline and in the center foreground are three cows in the river. A small peninsula juts out into the river from lower left corner with five human figures on land and five trees.
