We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.

Sunset Over the Hudson River


Jasper Francis Cropsey
United States; 1823-1900
Sunset Over the Hudson River
oil on canvas; 1873
Gift of Mary C. McEvitt, 1983

Inspired by the success of U.S. landscape painter Thomas Cole, Jasper Cropsey embraced the landscape as a means of building national pride and revealing God's hand in the beauty and detail of nature. This poetic image of a shimmering sunset over Cropsey's native Hudson River shows the growing interest in effects of light and atmosphere that came to be known as Luminism.
