Thomas Cole Historic House and Studio

Recommendations

"A museum dedicated to Thomas Cole and the Hudson river school beautifully sited in Cedar Grove,Coles home overlooking the Hudson river valley."

"Thomas Cole house and studios, which is well worth a visit. On the outskirts of Hudson is the Oliver Bronson house, undergoing a slow restoration and only occasionally open, but an architectural orgasm of fantastic mid 19th century details. In my town, Claverack, there is a wealth of early Dutch architecture starting with the Dutch Reform Church at the center of town. Other period houses line the Main Street, route 9H/23B, so it’s worth taking a slow drive or walk through town."

“My favorite museums are always situated in the houses of the artists or collectors (Frick Collection, Sir John Soane Museum, Luis Barragan house). Cedar Grove will transport you to the world of romanticism of the Hudson River School.”

Notes from Thomas Cole Historic House and Studio:
The Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill, NY marks the birthplace of American art, where the Hudson River School of landscape painting began. The nationally recognized historic site is an affiliate of the National Park Service and operates as a forward thinking non-profit organization embracing change and continually pursuing excellence. At its core, the organization’s purpose is to regenerate Cole’s revolutionary creativity so that it touches people’s lives today. Explore the historic buildings, immerse yourself in the multimedia experience The Parlors, watch an original film on the Hudson River School, explore special exhibitions of both 19th-century and contemporary art, enjoy sweeping views of the Catskill Mountains, and follow the Hudson River School Art Trail to see magnificent nearby views that Cole painted. We are located in the beautiful Hudson Valley, just two hours north of NYC, in the Village of Catskill, near the Rip Van Winkle Bridge. The 1815 Main House where Thomas Cole lived and worked is open year-round for guided tours. The Old Studio is open from March through November. The New Studio, which hosts special exhibitions is open from May through October. An annual contemporary art installation is presented from August through October.
