During the 1930s and ‘40s, Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) was one of American’s most famous personalities. The foremost illustrator of his day, he created definitive drawings for literary classics such as Moby Dick, candide, and The Canterbury Tales. Kent was also a prolific oil panter whose work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Musuem of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago. His haunting landscapes were inspired by his adventurous sojourns to Alaska, Tierra Del Fuego and Greenland. He was also a best-selling author and a social activist who won a landmark passport case against the federal government that allowed all US citizens to travel, regardless of their political affiliations. The New Yorker once quipped, “That day will mark a precedent, which brings no news of Rockwell Kent.”
