Powell sums up the cultural significance of Cole's series in stating that "n its totality, The Course of Empire represents a truly heroic moment both in Cole's career and in the history of American painting. It was a paradigm of the Romantic spirit - melancholy, grand in conceptual scope, and didactic and moralizing - and it succeeded in delighting its audience.

I read this book cover to cover and enjoyed every minute of it! It would make a great coffee table book, but it's an even better read. Thomas Cole was a talented artist who knew how to paint beauty with brush--we can learn a lot from him.

It is indeed a beautiful and comprehensive book. Weirdly, though, its reproduction of The Savage State (the first part of The Course of Empire) is reversed. A surprising error.
