Lot Details Lot 13 Jasper Francis Cropsey American, 1823-1900 Autumn Landscape, 1879 Signed JF Cropsey and dated 1879 (ll) Oil on canvas 12 x 20 inches Provenance: Newhouse Galleries, New York, inv. no. 17323 In an email dated August 17, 2016, Dr. Kenneth W. Maddox wrote of the present work, "I suspect the scene can never be precisely identified, and may not be topographically accurate, but it is obviously inspired by Cropsey's recollections of the Ramapo Valley near his summer home at Warwick. The decrepit bridge in the foreground, or variations of it, appear in over forty-five paintings by Cropsey. William Talbot termed it 'the capriccio of the spindly bridge,' a label I have adopted. Its origins came from the foreground bridge in Church's New England Scenery (which Cropsey felt was overrated)--a painting which Cropsey utilized for his compositions of Summer, Lake Ontario. Cropsey incorporated in his compositions not only Church's foreground bridge (without the covered wagon), the waterfall (without the mill), the church in the middle distance, the framing elm trees on the right, and even the distant spit of land, with trees and cattle. By 1862 when Cropsey was in England he used what was now his personal variation of the bridge for his painting Indian Summer on the Delaware River. The title is documented. Upon returning to America in 1863, beginning at the time he built his summer home, Aladdin, near Warwick, the spindly bridge was used as a motif in a series of paintings of the Ramapo River. There are a number of nineteenth-century stereoscopic views of the bridge, but it has not been located. In your painting the artist has reduced the size of the bridge and the scene does not portray the Ramapo River, but a waterfall. Your painting closely relates to Autumn Days, 1874, oil on canvas on board, NCF 1582; Autumn on the Wawayanda, (title inscribed on stretcher) 1877, oil on canvas, NCF 301; Late Fall Afternoon, 1875, NCF 679; and Autumn in the Warwick Valley, 1883, oil on canvas, NCF 874. Luckily, just before he died, Cropsey related in a letter dated 5 March 1900 [Collection, Newington-Cropsey Foundation] to his St. Louis dealer, M. Alfred Newhouse, purchaser of one of his The Mellow Autumn Time compositions, the significance to him of the Ramapo Valley bridges: 'There was [sic] a number of old Rustic Bridges-built by the miners-to team their iron ore to the smelting mills: some were very picturesque-But in the Course of Time they have mostly passed away.'" We are deeply grateful to Dr. Maddox, author of the catalogue raisonne of the artist's work published by the Newington-Cropsey Foundation, for kindly confirming the attribution of this painting and for generously allowing us to share his comments.
