You have a manufactured artwork, that is, manufactured and wholesaled to a world with a lot of walls to cover up.  The manufacturer will often use a familiar or familiar-sounding last name to make the knock-off piece seem important.  "Kent" of course conjures up notions of great American modernist Rockwell Kent, and you should definitely be familiar with his work.  I'm sorry I cannot find a picture of your artwork attached to your message, but I would fathom your work does not even pretend to look like the bold artwork of Rockwell Kent, but is likely some impressionistic looking ocean or street scene that looks vaguely European. Original fine art is almost always signed with a full artist's name, or at least initials or stylized monogram.  Worth = about what you might have paid for it.

If you are interested in collecting original fine art, I highly recommend you consult well established art dealers in your vicinity.
