James Cole

 

I studied traditional painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, which has a long and great history of figurative painting. I love art of the Victorian era, particularly the academic painters in 19th century France. My paintings follow the Classical methods taught over a hundred years ago, that are now out of vogue. I like the idea of being an artist out of time, somehow transported to this century like a modern day Rip Van Winkle.
