I particularly love the bluish billowing trees flanking the river, contrasted against the golden glow of the sun on the overlooking hill....JOHN DENISON CROCKER (Norwich, CT. 1822-1907). On an aesthetic level, Crocker's work is comparable to any of his era. In its historical value to southeastern Connecticut, the state and the region, Crocker's work can be likened to that of Benjamin West, Thomas Cole and Frederic Church. The artist's works hang in all major Connecticut museums, with the largest holding at the Slater Museum.
