Thomas Cole self-portrait


Thomas Cole (February 1, 1801 – February 11, 1848) was an American artist. He is regarded as the founder of the Hudson River School, an American art movement that flourished in the mid-19th century. Cole’s Hudson River School, as well as his own work, was known for its realistic and detailed portrayal of American landscape and wilderness, which feature themes of romanticism.[1]

All-American art by an American artist. I love the Hudson River school, and this guy is not the last you’ll see of it.
