Original Drawing for General Electric/Jeep, possibly by R. Kent

About

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.
