This menu cover by artist John Kelly is one of his sensitive depictions of Hawaiian people. It is appropriately called Seated Hula Dancer hula girl with her grass skirt against a back drop of white bird of paradise flowers. It is clear that the girl in the picture is Kelly's favorite model, Marion. His style is also unmistakably that of Gauguin which adds to the polynesian character of these prints.She has also adorned other Royal Hawaiian Hotel Menus with titles like Hawaiian Decoration, Bread Fruit, Hawaiian Nights, Lei Maker and others.
These unique posters would add an elegance to a room and a feeling of old world tranquility. This Giclee Art Print is a high quality reproduction, using 7-color Archival-Quality Pigmented Inks on 80 Lbs. Classic Linen Paper. Also available on premium canvas. It is nostalgia hawaiiana and very artistically inspired island decor. Also a great gift idea with MUCH ALOHA.
