Thomas Cole's renowned series of four paintings, entitled The Voyage of Life, presents an allegory of the Christian life. Each thought provoking painting is titled according to the stage it represents: Childhood, Youth, Manhood, & Old Age. In each stage or voyage of man's life, his Guardian Angel accompanies him down the river of life. From the innocence of childhood, to the flush of youthful overconfidence, through the trials and tribulations of middle age, to the aged hero's triumphant salvation, The Voyage of Life seems intrinsically linked to the Christian doctrine of death and resurrection. 

Cole said that in the throes of the terrifying experiences of the wilderness, the vulnerable man can only be saved by prayer and the assistance of the Lord and his Angel. Here in the painting, Manhood, third in the series, experience has taught us the realities of the world, we lift from our eyes the golden veil of early life and we feel fear, trouble, and abiding sorrow, asking our Angel for assistance and recognizing the power of God. 

The complete set of four paintings is a classic Christian allegory for earthly life, presented in dark tones and powerful symbolism. This individual painting is framed in ornate dark wood, with fine art quality framework featuring bevels, Florentine accents, and interior gold beading to highlight the imagery. A beautiful image for any faithful Christian who enjoys holy fine art.  The remaining three paintings in the series are sold separately. Various sizes available.
