An early American modernist Rockwell Kent (1882–1971) confidently colored scenes of stark wilderness. I was fortunate enough to see his works in person at the Portland Museum of Art in 2005. Today I happily stumbled upon this photograph taken of Kent in his studio. His choice of footwear brought a smile to my face.
