Renowned Thomas Cole scholar, Franklin Kelly, and other specialists on the artist describe Cole's last studio and its profound importance for later artists. Examinations of both finished and unfinished paintings illuminate the artist's creative methods and his intention to create landscapes that expressed complex and elevated meanings, bringing new understanding to the critical last phase of Cole's career. Images of little-known works that have not been seen for many years illustrate Cole's grand ambitions that were cut short by his untimely death at age 47. Published by Hirmer.
