"b. Hillsdale, N.Y., 1831. Pupil of Henry Peters Gray, New York, and Thomas Couture, Paris; afterward studying in Rome, Venice, and Florence. First exhibited, National Academy, 1853. elected member of the Academy, 1861. Member of the American Art Union. " The Awakening. A mother in light attire, as if prepared for a bath, has apparently fallen asleep on the bank of a quiet stream running through the forest. The seated child, missing the companionship of its mother, playfully touches her face with a clover leaf, bringing the suggestion of a smile preceding the 'Awakening.' Both figures possess that exquisite grace and refinement so characteristic of Mr. Loop's work. - National Academy Notes, 1883."
