Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) was an important American artist, illustrator and writer, the works of whom can sell into the hundreds of thousands of dollars at major auctions. Originally from the Northeast, Kent traveled widely, especially in the Canadian Arctic, Greenland, Alaska, southern Patagonia in South America, and Europe, painting striking works in a unique style that place him among the earliest American modernists. He illustrated books, some of which he also wrote. Kent had a mystic, spiritualist bent, and his works reflect that philosophy. Later in life he became an advocate for Soviet-American friendship and cooperation, leading him to become a target during the Joseph McCarthy anti-Communist period. In 1966 Kent became a full member of the National Academy. Today he is best remembered for his modernist symbolist paintings showing a respect for the stark beauty of the wilderness, and for his numerous fine works in the graphic arts. This print, (9 1/4" by 7 3/8" within the present mat, 17 3/8" by 14 1/4" in black frame), dates to 1936. The total edition was 1,000 impressions, published by Garden City Publishing Company. The image was a used as a frontispiece for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. Condition: scattered water spots on the front, and small dark spots at lower right near the mountain peak and among the stars at left center; residue around the top reverse edge from old tape. The print is currently taped lightly on each side to the mat; not laid down. See images. As framed, even the water spots are not all that visible from normal viewing distance.
