Kent, Rockwell (1882-1971) American artist, author and activist. A successful artist and printmaker, Kent also wrote extensively about his experiences in Alaska, Greenland and in the waters near Tierra del Fuego. Kent's reputation as one of the foremost American Modernist artists suffered in the 1940s and 1950s as a result of his left-wing politics and he was blacklisted by McCarthy.

Signed Photograph ("Rockwell Kent"). Sepia toned, 4 x 6", n.p., n.d. Kent signs at the lower white margin of the photo. Kent's name stamped on verso, one ½"tear at left edge, faint residue at top right corner. Very good condition.

Kent stands poised on the deck of a ship, hand in pocket, face to the sun. Given the snow around him and the heavy clothes, Kent is likely on one of his trips to Alaska, Greenland or Tierra del Fuego. A wonderful picture capturing the artist where he wished to be, on an adventure.
Estimated Value $250 - 300.

Realized $391
