Thomas Cole and The Garden of Eden
THOMAS COLE AND THE GARDEN OF EDEN
May 25–September 30, 2018
The exhibition centers on Cole’s masterwork Expulsion from the Garden of Eden, lent by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), and explores his aspirations for landscape painting at the start of his career in the 1820s and early 1830s. Works from the Fenimore’s collection and loans from more than a dozen other institutions and private collectors survey the themes of the Garden of Eden and reveal artists that influenced Cole early in his career.
Sponsored in part by The Tianaderrah Foundation, The Clark Foundation, Fenimore Asset Management, and Thomas and Christine Berk.
