Cropsey, Jasper Francis (1823 - 1900)
Sidney Plains with the Union of the Susquehanna and Unadilla RiversDate: 1874
Movement: Hudson River School
Technique: Oil on canvas
Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA
Size: 106.9 x 182.5 cm,
Note: Sidney Plains is an area in south-central New York State, between Binghamton and Oneonta, that Cropsey visited frequently on his trips to Niagara Falls and the Susquehanna River Valley. In the middle ground, at the extreme right, just below the hill with the white farmhouse flows the Unadilla River. A pencil drawing dated 1873 locates the exact spot Cropsey chose to delineate. In fact, the painting deviates little from the preparatory drawing and consequently takes on the character of a topographical record. Sidney Plains is painted in Cropseyâ€™s characteristic autumnal palette, which, according to the color notes written on the preparatory drawing, he found in nature. The sun breaking through the moist haze has the appearance of shafts of light.
