More about the artist:
John Melville Kelly was born in Oakland, California in 1879, and had a long and varied career there until moving to Hawaii, where he achieved fame as an artist.
Kelly worked for many years as an illustrator for the San Francisco Examiner, and had even been a prizefighter, before he and his artist wife, Katherine, went to Hawaii in 1923. Their plan was to stay a year, working for an advertising agency creating material to promote tourism. They fell in love with the islands and the people and stayed permanently.
Kelly's "ravishing depictions of Polynesians" was, in fact, what distinguished him from other artists in Hawaii at the time. He produced etchings and aquatints, primarily of human figures, though he occasionally did landscapes as well. He authored and illustrated Etchings and Drawings of Hawaiians in 1943, and The Hula as Seen in Hawaii in 1955. Kelly died in Honolulu in 1962.
