Picturing America: Thomas Cole and the Birth of American Art
First sentence: Thomas Cole was a curious boy.
Premise/plot: Picturing America is a picture book biography of Thomas Cole an American landscape artist. It is an excellent introduction to his art and the man himself. To learn more readers can visit: http://www.explorethomascole.org/ or https://www.wikiart.org/en/thomas-cole
My thoughts: I found Picturing America to be a fascinating book. I am not an art enthusiast. I know very little about art--American or otherwise. I found the book to be a compelling read. Cole makes for an intriguing subject. The more I read, the more I wanted to know.
