Rockwell Kent received his artistic training at the Art Students League in New York City under the instruction of Robert Henri (1865-1929). He was in rather august company at the school; his peers included Edward Hopper (1882-1967) and George Bellows (1882-1925). While Hopper and Bellows achieved their fame painting the myriad complexities of the growing metropolis of Manhattan, Kent’s success came from his exploration of the far reaches of the western hemisphere. His travels took him to Newfoundland, Greenland, Tierra del Fuego in South American, as well as to the Alaskan territories. Each place gave him a raw and pristine landscape which he could paint boldly in iridescent hues of pure color.
