    Soon after arriving in England in 1856, Jasper Francis Cropsey felt a strong attraction to the island’s southern coast. He would move to the Isle of Wight in 1859 and settle there briefly. Renowned in England for the autumnal scenes of his native North America, it was the rugged terrain of the Isle of Wight that inspired Cropsey to produce some of his finest work. Luccombe Chine, Isle of Wight, is a particularly notable departure from the artist’s earlier subjects in terms of color and composition. The cooler colors of the English countryside and compact, orderly nature of this landscape affirm its departure from an American setting.
