In this Nov. 23, 2016 photo provided by the Thomas Cole National Historic Site, art restoration expert Margaret Saliske uses scalpels and solvent to expose a decorative border in the east parlor of the home of artist Thomas Cole, in Catskill, N.Y. Not only did Cole paint mountainous landscapes that defined the Hudson River School. He painted on his parlor walls in Catskill. The decorative patterns near the ceiling lines had been covered over with many layers of paint and were hidden for more than a century before being discovered a few years ago. Now they are being restored and will be fully displayed when the Thomas Cole National Historic Site opens for the season in May 2017. (Jennifer Greim/Thomas Cole National Historic Site via AP)

FILE - This Aug. 20, 2016 file photo shows Cedar Grove, the home of artist Thomas Cole, considered the founder of the famous genre of American landscape painting known as the Hudson River School, in Catskill, N.Y. Not only did Cole paint the lush mountain landscapes that inspired the Hudson River School art movement of the 19th century, he also painted on the walls of his home. Pretty decorative patterns on the walls in the parlor of his Catskill home had been buried beneath layers of paint for more than a century before they were discovered a few years ago.
