Rockwell Kent (1882-1971)
A transcendentalist, Kent drew inspiration from nature and natural elements. His illustrations in the then-obscure novel Moby Dick made it increasingly popular, driving it to become the classic that it is today. During and after the Second World War, Kent was involved in the political scene, preferring to be pro-Soviet friendship and anti-nuclear warfare. He donated many of his works to the Soviet Union and became an honorary member of the Soviet Academy of Fine Arts. He was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize in 1967, and chose to donate the prize money to the women and children of north and south Vietnam.
