Thomas Cole's JourneyThe National Gallery stages the first exhibition to establish British-born Thomas Cole, one of America's leading painters of the mid-19th century, as a major global figure in 19th-century landscape art. Displaying Cole's paintings alongside those of his contemporaries, including Turner and Constable, among others, we get a better understanding of how his exposure to European painting informed his artistic identity. Paintings on display include works resulting from Cole's trips to England and Italy between 1829 and 1833, the monumental painting cycle 'The Course of Empire' and 'The Oxbow', a founding masterpiece of American landscape painting, never previously shown in the UK. This exhibition in the Ground Floor Galleries runs concurrently with Ed Ruscha: Course of Empire in Room 1.

 

About National Gallery

The National Gallery dominates London's Trafalgar Square with its neo-classical columns and portico designed by William Wilkins adjoining the square on its east side where it has been pedestrianised. Some of the finest examples of European art, ranging from 1260 to 1900, are included among the 2,300 paintings filling its halls and rooms. More about National Gallery
