Thomas Cole trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts before settling in New York City in 1825. Hoping to encourage a distinctive American aesthetic, Cole endorsed the formation of the National Academy of Design and, after his first visit to the Catskills in 1825, became the nominal leader of America's first Anglo-European art movement: the Hudson River School. Stylistically, this movement advanced detailed, representational landscapes that nonetheless conveyed nature's grandeur. In later years, Cole traveled abroad to hone his skills and expand his repertoire; grand history scenes and biblical subjects set against sublime nature began to dominate his oeuvre.
Following the gallery talk guests can look forward to a delicious lunch prepared by Hap Abraham Catering. Check back soon for menu details!
