Kent was a fine New York printmaker and illustrator. He had multifaceted careers as an artist, writer, political activist and erstwhile politician, lobster fisherman, ship's carpenter, and dairy farmer. He explored the world from Alaska to Russia and Greenland to Tierra del Fuego. During his lifetime he was hailed as a talented painter and printmaker but was also reviled for his leftist political affiliations.
Among the many books Kent illustrated were Herman Melville's Moby Dick: or, The Whale (1930), Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales (1934), Voltaire's Candide (1936), and The Complete Works of Shakespeare (1936).
