The Course of Empire by Thomas Cole.

I. The Savage State

II. The Arcadian or Pastoral State

III. The Consummation of Empire

IV. Destruction

V. Desolation


“There is the moral of all human tales;
‘Tis but the same rehearsal of the past.
First freedom and then Glory - when that fails,
Wealth, vice, corruption - barbarism at last.
And History, with all her volumes vast,
Hath but one page…”

- George Gordon Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage
