Thomas Cole – The Voyage of Life

The Voyage of Life series, painted by Thomas Cole in 1840, is a series of paintings that represent an allegory of the four stages of human life: childhood, youth, manhood, and old age. The paintings follow a voyager who travels in a boat on a river through the mid-19th century American wilderness. In each painting, accompanied by a guardian angel, the voyager rides the boat on the River of Life.

Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (7 June 1848 – 8 May 1903) was a leading French Post-Impressionist artist. He was an important figure in the Symbolist movement as a painter, sculptor, print-maker, ceramist, and writer. His bold experimentation with coloring led directly to the Synthetist style of modern art while his expression of the inherent meaning of the subjects in his paintings, under the influence of the cloisonnist style, paved the way to Primitivism and the return to the pastoral. He was also an influential proponent of wood engraving and woodcuts as art forms.

Giovanni Boldini (1845 -1931) “Born in Ferrara, Italy in 1845. Like Sargent, he had an international career, working mainly in Paris, but also in England where he was well known in London. By the turn of the century Boldini had become the most sought after portrait painter in Paris, achieving such a success that his reputation equaled that of Sargent’s in London. He was renowned as a colorist and technician, and his works are considered very much Parisian.”
