In Rockwell Kent's multifaceted career as an artist, he explored and excelled at painting, illustration, writing, printmaking, and design, all of which were bound by his enthusiastic wanderlust. Having completed several apprenticeships and studied at multiple schools, including Columbia University, Kent traveled the world in search of inspiration, spending extended periods of time in places as varied as Newfoundland, Ireland, Alaska, Maine, the Soviet Union, and an archipelago off the tip of South America (which he reached by sailboat.) Kent found the barren, rugged nature of these landscapes and climates to inspire his work. He was regarded as a most successful printmaker and contemporary painter of his time, though he later lost popularity for his Communist sympathies. Among many legacies, Kent is remembered his illustration of the literary classic, Moby Dick.
