Description

Up for sale from a recent estate in Honolulu Hawaii this 1928 Hawaii koa hardwood framed black and white etching print that is titled Hawaiian Holiday depicting children playing beach side on the east Oahu side that was created by the well known artist Huc-Mazelet Luquiens (1881-1961) .

This is the first of a good sized group of prints I was fortunate enough to receive as a consignment from a well known local collectors estate. In case you would like to get the print without the frame the shipping rate can be significantly lower.

Frame 14.5 inches x 17.5 inches
More about the artist:
Best known as a print maker and teacher who lived in Hawaii during the 1920s and 1930s, Huc-Mazelet Luquiens was also the author, in 1928, of Copper Plate Printing, a pamphlet that was the Honolulu Academy of Arts first publication.
Luquiens was a member of the faculty of the University of Hawaii, where, in the 1925-26 school year, art instruction was offered for the first time. He later was named the head of the art department, and was largely responsible for attracting qualified instructors and interested pupils to the University. Among the instructors who joined him at the University of Hawaii were Ben Norris, in 1936, Henry H. Rempel, Millard Sheets, and Frederik Taubes.
In April 1928, the Honolulu Academy of Art held a retrospective exhibition of the work of Luquiens, who, during the decade he resided in Hawaii, made 330 etchings, dry points, and aquatints as well as lithographs and wood engravings.
He is known for naming the Volcano School of Hawaiian painting the Little Hawaiian Renaissance.
