Thomas Cole

(1801-1848)

Thomas Cole was the leading painter and founder of the Hudson River School. The group was fond of painting river and mountain scenes not yet touched by men. Cole aimed to bring religious and moral meanings to his painting. His paintings are full of drama and grandeur which are strong romantic qualities. He often combines landscape with biblical and historical themes.
