Description
Art collectors throughout the world have long been fascinated with Hawaii's beauty, tropical location, and unique history and culture. Spanning the period from pre-Western contact to statehood and beyond—and boasting more than 500 color photographs—this book examines the artistic culture of the Hawaiian islands, including paintings, sculptures, clothing, household items, musical instruments, and surfboards. In addition to profiling the lives and careers of the artists, the book's extensive text discusses the region's history, the monarchy, the uses of Hawaii in popular kitsch, and an overview of "The Hawaii One Hundred," a list comprised of 100 essential books printed in the islands before the end of the 19th century.
