This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Best known as a print maker and teacher who lived in Hawaii during the 1920s and 1930s, Huc-Mazelet Luquiens was also the author, in 1928, of Copper Plate Printing, a pamphlet that was the Honolulu Academy of Arts first publication.

Luquiens was a member of the faculty of the University of Hawaii, where, in the 1925-26 school year, art instruction was offered for the first time. He later was named the head of the art department, and was largely responsible for attracting qualified instructors and interested pupils to the University. Among the instructors who joined him at the University of Hawaii were Ben Norris, in 1936, Henry H. Rempel, Millard Sheets, and Frederik Taubes.

In April 1928, the Honolulu Academy of Art held a retrospective exhibition of the work of Luquiens, who, during the decade he resided in Hawaii, made 330 etchings, dry points, and aquatints as well as lithographs and wood engravings.

He is known for naming the Volcano School of Hawaiian painting the Little Hawaiian Renaissance.
Note from Jerry Garcia who writes: "I forget where exactly I found this information. I want to attribute it to Jane Allison, Ph.D. from (I have no affiliation with Dr. Allison)."

(1881 - 1961) Huc-Mazelet Luquiens grew up in New England and went to school at Yale University. After Yale, he continued his studies in Paris and finally came to Hawaii in 1917.

In New England, Luquiens had focused his etchings on portraiture and architectural subjects. In Hawaii, he found the landscape irresistible and produced numerous studies which have since attained not only artistic but historical importance as well.

In 1924, he became the first art teacher at the University of Hawaii and served as chairman of the art department that he had created until 1946. During his life Luquiens was extremely active in community affairs concerning nature and art. Luquiens co-founded the organization of Honolulu Printmakers which continues today. His work in the community and his outstanding prints have made him a major figure in the art history of Hawaii.
