The Voyage of Life, Youth – Cole

This artwork by Cole, as one of a series of paintings by the artist on life, represents the youthful stage of life. A young man sails in a golden boat down a clear stream, an angel dressed in bright white directing him from the shore. Verdant and flowery banks line the water. A cliff shows in the distance. The pale blue, midday sky has the outline of a promising white monument in it.
