Product Description

The Art of Thomas Cole: Ambition and Imagination

by Ellwood C. Parry

Thomas Cole was one of the most important contributors of American landscape painting before the Civil War, with a career spanning the second quarter of the nineteenth century and often considered the founder of the Hudson River School of romantic landscape painting. This splendid volume offers a stunning and awe-inspiring insight into the genial artist's world of magnificent landscapes and sceneries, chronologically documenting his life and career. Three sections presenting and discussing his serial paintings are added, as well as two appendixes on the 1848 memorial exhibition and his entire life. 419 pages. 9.25 x 12.25 inches.

Lavishly illustrated with captioned color and black & white reproductions of the artist's works. Abundantly documented and explained. Superb portrait of the artist inside.

Published by: Associated University Presses, London and Toronto, 1988.
