Thomas Cole: The Artist as Architect by Annette Blaugrund

At the height of his career as the leader of the Hudson River School of American landscape painting, Thomas Cole listed himself in the New York City Directory as an architect. Why would this renowned painter, who had never before designed a building, advertise himself as such? This book gives us an analysis of his architectural endeavors and their impact on his painting, thus expanding our understanding of the breadth of his talents and interests.
