If you are interested in American art, you have to see Cedar Grove.
After years of being ignored or dismissed, the remarkable achievements of Thomas Cole as the originator of America's first art movement are finally being recognized. An artist of tremendous energy and vision, he packed far more than a lifetime of painting into his 48 short years. Many of those years were spent living and painting at Cedar Grove in Catskill, NY. His home Cedar Grove, with a commanding view of the Catskill Mts. he loved, provides instructive clues to his thinking and his creative process. This originals studiio complete with easels and painting equipment is resorded to its original state.
As a professional landscape painter myself, I learned a lot from the guided tour of the home and studio. The grounds and settting are absolutely lovely. It's a must see.
