About the Artist: The sensitivity and insight with which Anthony Eaten Cook portrays the Cook Forest are testimony to a lifetime of involvement with this magnificent landscape. His awareness comes naturally, for the forest was once the cherished property of the Cook family and his grandfather, Anthony Wayne Cook. In 1928, this visionary lumber baron deeded the original 7,200 acres comprising Cook Forest State Park to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for its protection in perpetuity. Two generations later, Anthony Eaten Cook — author, artist and naturalist — is an energetic advocate for the preservation of old-growth forests.
