According to Kenneth W. Maddox, Art Historian, the Newington-Cropsey Foundation, The composition showing a decrepit bridge with figures and cattle wading in the Ramapo River was frequently used by the artist from the 1870s through the 1890s. For Cropseys paintings of the Ramapo River and Ramapo Valley and of the capriccio of the Spindly Bridge, see Appendix. Another small study by Cropsey, not signed nor dated, Sunspray on the Hudson, oil on canvas, 4 x 6 inches, Private collection, Portland, Maine NCF 233, exhibits the same tacking holes as this study. From ca. 1875 to 1880 Cropsey made eight somewhat similar small oil studies which are now in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D. C.
