"b. Staten Island, 1823. Studied architecture in New York for five years, and then turned his attention to landscape painting. Elected a member of the National Academy, 1851. Spent three years in Italy, and lived in London from 1857 to 1863. Member of the American Water-Color Society and of the American Art Union. " Cropsey's painting is full of points that are new without being entirely foreign or strange to the European eye. It takes the ordinary observer into another sphere and region, while its execution will bear any amount of technical criticism. - London Times, 1862. " Autumn on the Ramapo. One of Mr. Cropsey's most brilliant autumnal landscapes." [P. 78.]
