Picturing America: Thomas Cole and the Birth of American Art Released September 2018
by: Hudson Talbott
When Thomas Cole came to America from his land in England during the times of the Industrial Revolution he was a struggling artist. Artists found it hard to make a living during these times, but Thomas kept at it. It was a passion of his and he would never stop drawing.
The reason Thomas Cole is celebrated is because after a trip up the Hudson River her was marveled at this US strip of natural beauty. His paintings of his imagination and what he saw on this river boat brought some gorgeous landscape art. These images would go on to become a piece of conversation about efforts to conserve the natural lands and beauty in those parts of the country.
