John Kelly Hawaiian Figure Drawings


John Kelly (1878-1962) Went to Hawaii for a year but stayed a lifetime making drawings and prints for commercial sale. There was a big retrosopective exhibit of his work in 2005 - Hawaiian Idyll: The Prints of John Kelly.  A book of his work titled Etchings & Drawings of Hawaiians was published in 1943.  Coincidentally a copy is for sale on Ebay along with some individual pages from the book offered by another seller.
