Viking Press is an American publishing company now owned by Penguin Random House.. It was founded in New York City on March 1, 1925, by Harold K. Guinzburg and George S. Oppenheim and then acquired by the Penguin Group in 1975..The firm's name and logo, a Viking ship drawn by Rockwell Kent, were meant to evoke the ideas of adventure, exploration, and enterprise implied by the word "Viking"..Viking publishes approximately 100 books a year..Viking Kestrel was one of its imprints..Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Consulting Editor..Rockwell Kent was born (June 21, 1882 ) in Tarrytown, New York, the same year as fellow American artists George Bellows and Edward Hopper.. Kent was of English descent.. Kent lived much of his early life in and around New York City where he attended the Horace Mann School.. In his mid-40s he moved to an Adirondack farmstead that he called Asgaard where he lived and spainted until his death of a attack ( March 13, 1971).. Kent studied with several influential painters and theorists of his day..Kent's early paint ings of Mount Monadnock and New Hampshire were first shown at the Society of American Artists in New York in 1904, when Dublin Pond was purchased by Smith College..In 1908, Henri was one of the organizers of a landmark show entitled "The 8" (after the 8 painters displaying their works) at the Macbeth Galleries in New York.. Besides his own works and those produced by the "Philadelphia 4" ..A transcendentalist and mystic in the tradition of Thoreau and Emerson, whose works he read, Kent found inspiration in the austerity and stark beauty of wilderness..In the 1950s Kent became increasingly supportive of Soviet-American friendship, peace, and a world devoid of nuclear weapons..He subsequently became an honorary member of the Soviet Academy of Fine Arts and in 1967 the recipient of the International Lenin Peace Prize.. Kent specified that his prize money be given to the women and children of Vietnam, both North and South.. Other recent exhibitions include the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery and Owen D. Young Library at St. Lawrence University..An exhibition marking the centennial of Kent's time in Winona, Minnesota, took place there in 2013..Noted American and Canadian writers in recent years have found much gold to mine in Kent's improbable personal and public life..
