More Thomas Cole

because it cooks in five minutes and is ready to post. He's just such a swell landscape artist. Anyone who can paint distance (not just perspective) is topnotch in my book

Morning Mist Rising, Plymouth, New Hampshire (1830)

Mt. Etna (1842)

Mr. Cole has a ruin-fetish, but then again, so do I

Aqueduct Near Rome (1842)

And when necessary, he can get Middle Earth on your ass:

Expulsion from the Garden of Eden (1828)

Expulsion - Moon and Firelight (1828)
