1940s Rockwell Kent Jeep Generator Illustration $2500

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

Here’s an interesting, early illustration by Rockwell Kent. It’s on a fine art website, which in part explains the price. If the link below does not work, go here https://www.1stdibs.com and enter “jeep” into the search field.

“This original drawing was created for an advertisement by General Electric for its portable power generators, here shown powering a saw wielded by two lumberjacks. Attributed to Rockwell Kent, who did many illustrations for GE and other companies to support his family and travels, it captures the kind of isolated, tree-covered scene that Kent so cherished. Beautifully rendered, it is an excellent example of the kind of graphic work recently celebrated in an exhibit at the New York State Museum in Albany. Note, too, the Jeep, which had been introduced during World War II and had come to represent tough, dependable transportation.”

    Looks like Bubba got ahold of that Jeep. It’s missing the rear portion of the frame and cross member.
