The attempt to randomly view Thomas Cole’s The Course of Empire, a five-canvas series of landscape paintings, while the sounds of variations play, culminated to a similarity with impressions and contrast in thematic terms (Hudson). Vividly, the audio-visual task yielded to a seemingly rhythmic narrative with moments of suspense along with quiet orchestration. In ‘The Savage State’, T. Cole obviously knew where shades must be thick and rough from tender yet preserving an overall smooth texture to let the theme come off more dramatically upon which to impose enigma of an undulating and anxious tempo. Heavily hued are spaces which seem to indicate signs of doom with conspicuous effectual dustiness. Then with ‘The Arcadian or Pastoral State’, I was brought to draw intersection between fairness of weather in the scene and the mundane lowness of pitch in one of the variations. Cole made it particularly interesting by locating a perspective which is likely to get a viewer’s attention to point at very fine details of the tree leaves and the grass. The theme’s emphasis even paid off well in Cole’s success to capture in thought a hazy afternoon setting to signify balanced lighting and an imaginary shed that further characterizes the subject.
