The third in a 5-part allegorical series inspired by Byron's Childe Harold's Pilgrimage (1812-18) , this work suggests the height of ancient Rome with its colonnaded marble structures, sailing ships and joyous crowds. Cole, an English-born American artist, is regarded as the founder of the Hudson River School, an American art movement known for detailed portrayals of romanticism and naturalism. Thomas Cole Mountain, fourth highest peak in the Catskills, is named for the artist. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
