The prints of Rockwell Kent excel in craftsmanship. His years of work as an architectural draftsman and carpenter provided him with the skills necessary to draw accurately and cut fine woodblocks. The preliminary drawing for Starlight is strong and precise even as a study. Unknown to exist until this time, this drawing and subsequent print were made for an advertising campaign for the American Car and Foundry Company. Also unknown to exist are the final drawings and tracings used to illustrate an article on the Hayden Planetarium in New York in Life Magazine in 1937. Lunar Disintegration or End of the World series, as titled by Kent, shows his concern for our planet long before ecology was on the minds of the general population.
