THOMAS COLE AND THE HUDSON RIVER SCHOOL

With Prof. Thomas Germano

Friday, September 21 at 11 AM

Thomas Cole was the ideological founder of American landscape art later called "The Hudson River School.” Cole traveled extensively throughout England and Italy returning to America to create some of his most ambitious works, notably 'The Oxbow' and 'The Course of Empire,' works which inspired a new generation of American painters. Cole's passion for the American wilderness manifested into strong visual warnings of the harsh ecological cost of unchecked development of the land.
