We are still in Eden... shall we turn from it? - Thomas Cole

The Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill, New York, offers an array of online programs covering the painter Thomas Cole, his period in America and the Hudson River School artists.

Visit the website to enjoy videos of Sunday Salons with talks by leading American art scholars, Curator's Talks about exhibitions, and Thomas Cole Site original videos and insights.

The lecture is entitled, “What’s In a Name? Interpreting Thomas Cole’s Course of Empire,” and explores Cole’s epic series of paintings The Course of Empire, 1835-1836, and how it embodies the artist’s concern for the future of the United States.
