Inhaltsangabe: Hawai`i has long been the inspiration for works of art by artists of widely divergent cultural backgrounds and points of view. Encounters is the most comprehensive examination of the various artistic visions of Hawai`i. Spanning a period of 163 years, the 160 pieces included in this volume are representative of collections not only in Hawai`i, but also in many other countries. In perusing this volume, readers will renew their understanding of early Western perceptions of the culture, society, and historical events encountered in the islands.
From Library Journal:
This is the catalog of a one-time-only exhibition of the first artistic visions of Hawaii. Primarily the work of European and American artists (no work by non-Europeans is known to exist), it opens with sketches circa January 1778 as Cook's Discovery anchored off the coast of Kauai. "Artists first accompanied voyages to the Pacific to record scientific data. . . . The positive scientific value of having a professionally trained landscape and portrait artist aboard was obvious." Perhaps the most interesting contributions here are of important, little-known works held by foreign institutions. The power and mystery of Hawaii's volcanoes generated the famous "Volcano School" of the artists Furneaux, Tavernier, and Strong; also included are works of emerging Hawaii Modernism, beginning in 1890. Accompanied by first-rate, extensive historical background and analysis, this exquisite volume is highly recommended for all art and history collections.
