Did You Know?

Kent loved to paint landscapes in cold, remote areas, including Maine, Alaska, Newfoundland, and Greenland.

Description

Located off the coast of Maine, Monhegan Island has long drawn artists attracted to its rugged headlands, brooding forests, and dramatic ocean vistas. Unlike most colleagues who visited during summer, Kent built a home and lived there year-round, working as a well digger, lobsterman, and carpenter from 1906–8. This boldly rendered winter scene was painted from his studio window.
