Thomas Cole’s series Course of Empire is about the impact that humans have in nature and it’s cycle. It is clear that Cole is trying to show this cycle in his five paintings of nature, human growth, the glory of civilization, its destruction, and then the ruins.

Within the book, Chris’s past is documented by his inability to conform.

Rather than strike humanity with tornados, tsunamis, and earthquakes, nature has allowed man to lvie and thrive in the greater picture of the world.

an everyday normal occurrence (going to a pool house) that most people will pass off is captured in a light that puts a new perception on the normal. I’d say that this is to me the most “artistic” piece because it seems so real, and so gritty and stripped back.
