Clues in A View of the Mountain Pass Called the Notch of the White Mountains (Crawford Notch) by Thomas Cole

In 1826, a storm caused a rock slide at Crawford Notch that killed an entire family of nine and brought national attention to the notch. The tragedy and the idyllic beauty of the surrounding area may have inspired Cole to paint this landscape. Cole, who subscribed to the romantic notion that unspoiled nature is a reflection of God’s presence and that the destruction of virgin forests is an outrageous violation of His will, has included elements in this painting that hint at his message: serene, breathtaking beauty of the area, human activity that is beginning to spoil this beauty, and gathering storm clouds that foreshadow the impending catastrophe.
