“Rockwell Kent was one of those who truly lived more lives than one. Into his long life he crammed more careers than any ordinary man would seriously contemplate. Painter, muralist, illustrator, printmaker, book designer, graphic artist, architect and builder, writer and editor, speaker and lecturer navigator and restless traveler, political and social activist—he was all these and much more.”
“This is not to say that he was merely a jack-of-all-trades. As a painter, he won critical acclaim and his canvases were acquired by important museums and discriminating collectors. He was the first artist to incorporate himself, paying his shareholders handsome dividends. From long sojourns in Alaska, Tierra del Fuego, and Greenland, among others, he brought back powerful paintings and vivid accounts of his experiences. The romantic appeal of the paintings and the circumstances of their production in faraway places brought large crowds to see them. Perhaps no other American artist before him had so graphically expressed the sense of remoteness and awesome splendor of the Arctic.”                    Fridolf Johnson, A Kent Biography
