Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #35

November 23, 2011


Part of the challenge of verifying a work's information can be finding the artist's signature—which is often hidden in the image.

Chloe and I have had quite a time hunting down Thomas Cole's signatures in both his Voyage of Life: Childhood, 1854–1855 series print and Home in the Woods, 1847 painting. With some determination (and a flashlight!) we eventually found them concealed in the works. Of course once spotted, the signature is almost obvious. See if you can find it!
