Although the artist spent many years traveling around the United States - living during different periods in Pennsylvania and Ohio - Cole ultimately settled in the Hudson River Valley in 1836. In fact, his rural studio in Catskill, New York is now called the Thomas Cole National Historic Site and is home to many local art programs and preservation efforts. Cole's work has been called a "higher style of landscape": unlike the Impressionists who preceded him, Cole didn't paint scenery just to capture its beauty. Instead, he implemented romantic themes like biblical and literary subjects to elevate the subject matter to a higher plane. Cole's most famous works include The Oxbow, which shows Mount Holyoke in Massachusetts; and View on the Catskill, depicting the Catskill Mountains near his home in New York.
