In the 1860s, Cropsey, who was trained as an architect, built Aladdin, a grand country house near Warwick, New York, not far from Greenwood Lake. This large body of water on the New Jersey and New York border was a popular resort and had been the artist's favorite haunt since the early 1840s. His tranquil sunset view of the lake reveals a nostalgic sensibility, reminding us that the Hudson River School aesthetic was on the wane by the 1870s. Cropsey's fortunes would decline as well, forcing the sale of Aladdin and his relocation in 1885 to Ever Rest at Hastings-on-Hudson. The artist's picturesque riverside villa and elaborate studio have been preserved by teh Newington Cropsey Foundation and can be visited today.
