Born in 1882, American artist Rockwell Kent is best known for his portrayal of landscapes and human figures. Kent began his formal art training at the Shinnecock Hills Summer School of Art and went on to study at the Art Students League. Considered an early Modernist, Kent was also influenced by Transcendentalism, which can be seen through the mystic qualities found in Rockwell Kent's prints of landscapes. Rockwell Kent prints are valuable collectors' pieces today.
Kent worked in several different mediums including painting, lithography, and wood engraving. Inspired by the artist's love for travel, Rockwell Kent's lithographs for sale often depict people from a wide range of backgrounds and incorporate distinct geometrical shapes. During his lifetime, Rockwell Kent's wood cuttings were among his most popular work, and his original line of study, architecture, no doubt added to his precision as an engraver. Buyers can find rare woodcut prints for sale online by a variety of artists.
