The Course of Empire

The Course of Empire--Destruction

Hi everyone,
The entry for Cole's The Course of Empire at Wikipedia is surprisingly decent--plus the five paintings of the series are each reproduced digitally with good resolution jpegs. Enjoy.

What a great re-cap of Thomas Cole's The Course of Empire. Seeing the paintings all at once in order allows me to see the progression of the theme of human interaction with the environment and the effects of human presence.
