Baker of the Bread of Abundance, 1945
The Baker of the Bread of Abundance, which appears to illustrate its own story, showcases Kent’s propensity toward strong, contrasting light and color. Here, the family dining at the table is awash in the warm illumination that radiates from the loaf of bread. In the large hands of the looming figure, Kent may have intended the bread to symbolize American abundance and family togetherness at the end of World War II.
