The person portrayed in the picture above is Thomas Cole. An American painter of the Romantic era.
Impressed by his work, almost a year ago I dedicated a post about a painting series he did named
THE COURSE OF THE EMPIRE.
You can see it here:
Few days ago I received in a message from the people that run an official page about him with the request to spread this link further. So here I`m doing it.
"Our Thomas Cole page provides visitors with Cole's bio, over 20 of his works, exclusive articles, and up-to-date Cole exhibition listings. The page also includes related artists and categories, allowing viewers to discover art beyond our Cole page."
The THOMAS COLE site:
I urge anyone who visits this website to do the same and spread further this website. Its the least thing that someone can do as a gesture of honour, respect and remebrance to the great artists such as Thomas Cole was.
