Description

Up for sale from a recent estate in Honolulu Hawaii, this 1921 Hawaii sweet small period framed oil painting on canvas board that is titled "Kaneohe Bay, Oahu" and was created by the well known California artist Elmer Ellsworth Garnsey (1862-1946). I was so happy to have opened up the back of the painting and to finding the information and the where the scene depicts. The artist is known to be a East Coast and US mainland artist that did trips to California but I could not find any information of him having visited Hawaii. So finding the card (shown in the photos) made this just so much sweeter!! The condition is described above for more information please check the photos.
Measurements:
Painting 8.25 inches x 10.25 inches
Sheet 12 inches x 14 inches
More about the artist:
Elmer Ellsworth Garnsey was primarily a muralist who painted on the East Coast from a studio in New York City. He was born in Holmdel, New Jersey and took art training at the Art Students League and Cooper Union. Affiliations included the National Society of Mural Painters, and the American Federation of the Arts.
His work is in the Library of Congress, Boston Public Library, Memorial Hall at Yale University, City Art Museum of St. Louis, U.S. Custom House in New York City, and the Capitol Buildings in Des Moines, Iowa, and Madison, Wisconsin.
He was the father of painter Julian Garnsey (1887 - 1969), who spent most of his time in California painting landscapes. E. E. Garnsey painted when he made trips to California to visit his son, and Julian Garnsey assisted his father in painting commissioned murals.
