Biography Joseph Ropes
From the artist's web site, www.whitemountainart.com/biographies, this biography reference was suggested by Jack Proebstle:
Born into a prominent Salem, Massachusetts family, Joseph Ropes was known as a topographical draughtsman of the small, bustling town of Hartford,
Connecticut. Ropes also worked as a miniaturist, a landscapist, and a teacher of art. He used crayon as well as the more conventional techniques.
He did not become an artist until he was in his mid-thirties, and he studied at the National Academy of Design in the 1840s. After further study with John R. Smith in New York, Ropes settled in Hartford, Connecticut, where he maintained a studio from 1851 and 1865 and did drawings, prints, and paintings.
