about the artist

Rockwell Kent artist, author and political activist had a long and varied career. During his life time, he worked as an architectural draftsman, illustrator, printmaker, painter, lobsterman, ship’s carpenter and dairy farmer.

The graphic art tradition in which Rockwell Kent worked was not that of the Post-Impressionists or abstract international style, but an older and somewhat English style. Hogarth, Blake, Constable, the Pre-Raphael, and British illustrators were his artistic antecedents. His work is most frequently identified with that of the American Social Realists and the great muralists of the 1920-30s. State University of NY at Plattsburgh
