Winter Landscape

Rockwell Kent (American, 1882-1971)


From 1905 until 1910 Kent lived on Monhegan Island, Maine, where he painted this scene.

Despite the relatively serene conditions, Kent imbued the landscape with a sense of drama and magnitude.

The broad brushstrokes showcase the influence of Kent’s teachers William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri.
