Quote of the Day: Thomas Cole

“If man were not insensible to the beauty of nature the great works necessary for the purposes of commerce might be carried on without destroying it, and at times might even contribute to her charms by rendering her more accessible; but it is not so.  They desecrate whatever they touch.  They cut down the forests with a wantoness for which there is no excuse, even gain and leave the herbless rocks to glimmer in the burning sun.”

  1. Nice blog about Thomas Cole. Thomas Cole was born in England but moved to the United States as a youth. His talents for painting were soon discovered and his works focused on landscapes. Please check out my blog and let me know what you think! What a neat way to do Thomas Cole art and fun with it!
