Artistic Focus Robert Kennicott's work often featured the human figure in various relaxed states. His 1939 portrait of a reclining African American youth was bold, and a subject not commonly painted at that time. He had an appreciation for the human form, very likely informed by his primary profession as a physician.
• Robert Helm Kennicott was born in Luverne, Minnesota, in 1892, and had probably settled in Los Angeles by the early 1930s.
