Growing up in a genteel family in New York City, Rockwell Kent was a member of the rugged realist school of landscape painters as well as a popular illustrator and printmaker.  His 1930 illustrations for Moby Dick are among his most lasting achievements.  He was the first American artist to have work exhibited in the Soviet Union, a reflection of his Communist Party sympathies, which earned him the Lenin Peace Prize in 1967.  This espousal of radical politics caused his car (showing 500 of 34080 characters).
