A pioneer and icon of the beat generation, Jack Kerouac was an American novelist and poet best known for his broad vision and influential work. A stylish personality reflected in his work which is a blend of issues ranging from poverty, drugs, and traveling to jazz, spirituality, and Buddhism.
Many may not be aware but to subsidize his art & support his life, Kerouac worked as a lineman in the railroad, using a lantern to walk the tracks at night, thus the lamp in the painting.
