Thomas Cole's Journey

Published January 25, 2018

Celebrated as one of America's preeminent landscape painters, Thomas Cole was born in northern England at the start of the industrial revolution, immigrated to the United States in his youth, and traveled extensively throughout England and Italy as a young artist. He returned to America to create some of his most ambitious works and inspire a new generation of American painters. This exhibition will examine for the first time the artist's career in relation to his European roots and travels, establishing Cole as a major figure in 19th-century landscape art within a global context.

The exhibition is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art 1000 5th Ave, New York, NY 10028 and runs from 1/30 - 5/13/2018.
