Thomas Cole “Quotes”

How lovely are the portals of the night, when stars come out to watch the daylight die.

Thomas Cole (February 1, 1801 – February 11, 1848) was a 19th century American artist. He is regarded as the founder of the Hudson River School, an American art movement that flourished in the mid-19th century. Cole’s Hudson River School, as well as his own work, was known for its realistic and detailed portrayal of American landscape and wilderness, which feature themes of romanticism and naturalism.
