Summary/Review: "In December 1846 Thomas Cole excitedly began work in his new studio, but his early death left his great ambitions unfinished. The studio and its deep impact on future artists is described by renowned Cole scholar, Franklin Kelly and further contributors, bringing new understanding to the critical last phase of Cole’s career. Thomas Cole’s influence after his death, through both the finished and unfinished paintings that remained in his self-designed studio, was truly profound.

Written by one of the foremost American art historians, it examines the artist’s ambition to create paintings that expressed complex and elevated meanings. Images of works not seen for many years will illustrate Cole’s intentions and influence"--Publisher's website.
