Published in association with Yale University Press to accompany the 2018 exhibition at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site. Essays by curators Tim Barringer, Gillian Forrester, Jennifer Raab, Sophie Lynford, and Nicholas Robbins look closely at how Thomas Cole’s creative process was driven by drawings, notebooks, letters, and manuscripts. Beautifully illustrated with works on paper ranging from watercolors to etchings, mezzotints, aquatints, engravings, and lithographs, as well as notable paintings, this book offers important insights into Cole’s formulation of a profound new category in art—the American sublime. Paperbound with flaps, 192 pages, 9 x 11 inches, 120 color illustrations.
