In 1845 His 'Don Quixote and Sancho Panza with Rosinante in Don Pedro's Hut' attracted much attention at The British Institution. From 1849-82, he exhibited landscapes at the Royal Academy, mainly of Hampshire, Surrey, Cornwall, Wales Sussex etc. His son George Vicat Cole was also a prominent landscape painter, and their work is sometimes confused.
