Born in Tarrytown, New York, Rockwell Kent's artistic education included architecture studies at Columbia University, painting at the Shinnecock School, and printmaking under artists of the Ashcan School. While most famously a landscape painter and printmaker, Kent was also a political activist. Kent created prints for politically charged magazines and contributed illustrations for American literary classics including Moby Dick.
