Thomas Cole ranks as my favorite artist. Although I never
met the man, I did get to see an exhibition of his work. I have created these pages
to pull together a number of sites on the internet, and to display electronic
images of his work (please see the disclaimer on my Thomas Cole Images page.
I will link to a few external pages, but no external images, as I don't believe in theft of bandwidth. To see an exhibition of in-line images, and for additional text regarding his work, go to my Thomas Cole Images page.

Here, I link to a web page about the Thomas Cole House (although I have never visited his house).
And here are the paintings. I will work on thumbnails someday (yes, as a visitor, I very much appreciate when thumbnails are in place):
