Graphite signed and titled in the lower margin. A gift print of the Honolulu Printmakers to their Associate Members.
Condition: Very good. Archivally framed in premium Koa wood frame, ready to hang.
The author says of this print: "I wanted to capture the emotion and feeling the essence of magic in the ever-changing light and dark patters of the windward side of the island. Sometimes working in only black and white affords the artist a greater opportunity for delicacy and strength than does color."
- Alexander Samuel MacLeod, also known as A. S. MacLeod, was a painter and printmaker. He was born on Prince Edward Island, Canada on April 12, 1888. In 1921, MacLeod arrived in Hawaii, where he worked in the art departments of the magazine Paradise of the Pacific and the local papers, The Honolulu Advertiser and the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. By 1929, he had returned to Canada and resided there for ten years. Again in Hawaii, MacLeod became the director of the graphic art department for the United States Army in the Pacific. In 1943, he published a book of his Hawaiian prints, The Spirit of Hawaii, Before and After Pearl Harbor. MacLeod retired to Palo Alto, California, where he died in 1956. -Wikipedia
