Cedar Grove

I recently posted pictures of the Olana historic site and the Rip Van Winkle bridge as seen from Olana.  The Rip Van Winkle bridge connects Colombia County to Greene County.  As you exit the bridge on the Greene County side you are in the town of Catskill and here you will find Cedar Grove, the Thomas Cole Historical Site.

Who was Thomas Cole?

Thomas Cole was a landscape artist who formed the well known Hudson River School of Landscape Painting.  The beauty of the region provided the inspiration any artist desired; the majestic Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains. Of his many well known works, his most famous masterpiece is the " The voyage of life"

Cedar Grove was a property Cole had first rented. However, it became his home when he married the owner's niece in 1836Cedar Grove.

On the property he built his art studio. The first in the US to be constructed for that sole purpose.

This time of year would be a great time to visit this area especially since there is a great exhibition on display to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's trip up the Hudson River.
