Hudson Talbott Signing Picturing America

Hudson Talbott will be signing Picturing America: Thomas Cole and the Birth of American Art.

This fascinating look at artist Thomas Cole’s life takes readers from his humble beginnings to his development of a new painting style that became America’s first formal art movement: the Hudson River school of painting. Hudson Talbott takes readers on a unique journey as he depicts the immigrant artist falling in love with--and fighting to preserve -- his new country.

“Readers will fall in love with landscape in this captivating, inspiring picture book. A fine addition to art history collections.” — School Library Journal

“Talbott, who wrote about the same area in River of Dreams (2009), does a fine job of capturing an artist’s life, while at the same time offering a history lesson on the natural beauty of the country, as well as an early push to protect the environment.” — Booklist

Hudson Talbott is an award-winning author/illustrator of more than 20 children’s books.
