The Newington-Cropsey Foundation was founded in 1977 for the purpose of preserving and displaying the home and paintings of Jasper F. Cropsey (1823-1900), Hudson River School artist.
Originally located at Ever Rest, Cropsey's home, in 1994 the foundation completed an art complex, including the Gallery of Art building, at 25 Cropsey Lane. The complex, along with Ever Rest, houses the foundation's large collection of Cropsey papers and research archives, in addition to providing space for the permanent Cropsey collection and temporary exhibitions of other artists' work. The bulk of the foundation's collection of Cropsey's painting are located in the Gallery of Art. The collection features an extensive array of Cropsey's work, highlighting his artistic goals of painting nature in a realistic fashion and conveying his spiritual belief that God and Nature are one: both of these ideals were common goals of most of the Hudson River School artists.
