Summary
"Distant Shores: The Odyssey of Rockwell Kent accompanies a traveling exhibition of Kent's wilderness artwork, organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. This handsome volume features 80 paintings, prints, and drawings - more than 50 in full color - related to Kent's sojourns in the wilderness. Included in this collection are several paintings from the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg that have not been seen by audiences outside of Russia in more than 40 years. Kent's dramatic black and white illustrations for the 1930 edition of Herman Melville's Moby Dick - still considered an American classic - are also featured. The essays describe Kent's career as a painter, printmaker, book designer, illustrator, and writer, as well as his extraordinary life as an explorer."--Jacket
