This menu cover by artist John Kelly (Ca 1945) is one of his sensitive depictions of Hawaiian people. It is appropriately called SEATED HULA DANCER portraying a seated hula girl being serenaded by her suitor, playing the ukulele. It is clear that the island girl in the picture is Kelly's favorite model, Marion. His style is unmistakably that of Gauguin which adds to the polynesian character of the art. Other Royal Hawaiian Hotel Menus by Kelly include titles like Hawaiian Decoration, Bread Fruit, Seated Hula Dancer, Lei Maker and others.

These unique posters would add an elegance to a room and a feeling of old world tranquility.
