Cole came to America with his family in 1818. With little formal training in the art of painting, Cole was recognized as a landscape artist by his mid-twenties. Beginning in about 1833, Cole maintained a studio in Catskill, New York, where he painted many landscapes of the Catskill Mountains and other areas of the Northern Appalachians.

Beautiful. Thanks for posting.
Thanks Jay. A good posting as usual.
I’ll add one. “Landscape Scene from ‘Last of the Mohicans.”
Thank you. I learned something and have new things to enjoy.
You can’t go wrong with any art from Cole, Church, Bierstadt and Inness. They painted America at its most beautiful.
My favorite Cole painting. "Notch in thw White Mountains" (Crawford Notch, NH)
Art ping for you!
There are two sets of these paintings. One is in a museum up in Utica, NY, which I haven't seen. The other is at the National Gallery in Washinton, DC, which I try to see on most of my visits there.
