"A transcendentalist and mystic in the tradition of Thoreau and Emerson, whose works he read, Kent found inspiration in the austerity and stark beauty of wilderness. After Monhegan, he lived for extended periods of time in Winona, Minnesota (19121913), Newfoundland (191415), Alaska (191819), Vermont (19191925), Tierra del Fuego (192223), Ireland (1926), and Greenland (1929; 193132; 193435). His series of land and seascapes from these often forbidding locales convey the Symbolist spirit evoking the mysteries and cosmic wonders of the natural world. "I don't want petty self-expression", Kent wrote, "I want the elemental, infinite thing; I want to paint the rhythm of eternity.""; Signed by Author
