Rockwell Kent is most well known for his illustration of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. This long and boring but classic novel tells the tale of a man, Captain Ahab, circling the globe in search of a whale. In a similar fashion, Kent traveled the world in search of beautiful women and jagged cliffs. He spent a year in Ireland, which has an abundance of both. Posed on the edge of a dramatic and remote cliff, towering high above the wild North Atlantic, this is the last know sighting of poor Annie McGinley. Although there is no evidence of wrongdoing, I have my doubts - “Just a little closer to the edge sweetie”. Call me Ishmael.
