Join design historian and historic interiors expert Jean Dunbar for the unveiling of a new discovery at Thomas Cole’s home inspired by Cole’s first love, English design. Living and earning on the cusp between manufacturing and art, Cole acquired the skills to become a painter. Cole’s home in Catskill illustrates his virtuosity as a designer and the unquenchable passion for decoration that permeated his life as an artist.

The Sunday Salons are presented in Thomas Cole’s New Studio once a month from January through April at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill, New York. All Salons start at 2 pm and will be followed by audience discussions. Now in its 16th year, the Sunday Salons present today’s most engaging speakers on topics relating to American landscape painting.
