jan 21, 1836 - The Oxbow (View from Mount Holyoke, Northampton, Massachusetts, after a Thunderstorm) by Thomas Cole
This work is also a oil painting. It is landscape and is divided into the romantic on the left and the Claude-like on the right. It speaks greatly to manifest destiny since it depicts a tame wilderness with man's touch in golden light whereas the untouched, overgrown wilderness is shrouded in darker, stormy values.
