Book Report: Thomas Cole’s Refrain

Thomas Cole’s Refrain

By H. Daniel Peck

In Thomas Cole’s Refrain, author H. Daniel Peck takes a deep dive into the Hudson River School founding artist’s depictions of the Catskill Creek, a view that dominated a good number of Thomas Cole’s paintings.

The works — 10 in total — have key motifs that Peck traces and describes in great detail, exploring the patterns of change and permanence throughout the scenes.
