Distant View of Niagara Falls, 1830
This work by Thomas Cole is a great use of romanticism of nature. The painting is euphoric as you notice the steam coming off the fall and the variety of colors on this fall day. This American landscape has not been conformed or touched by outsiders. You can notice the indigenous natives naturally gazing on the fall. The romanticism is prominent by the pureness of the landscape at an early stage of American history.
