In this video from the Children’s Video Tour, kids can learn more about four paintings by American artist Thomas Cole, which depict the artist’s vision of the journey through life, from birth to old age. Study these paintings as a group and compare the skies, weather, river, and surrounding landscapes. Consider how the forces of nature change from scene to scene, creating a different mood in each one. Which stage of life do you think the artist felt was the most exciting? On view in the West Building, Main Floor, Gallery 60. http://www.nga.gov/fcgi-bin/tinfo_f?object=52450&detail=none ----- Find the Children's Video Tour at http://www.nga.gov/education/timetravel/index.shtm
