A very unusual image of a young woman of Hawaii in a garden setting. Her form is beautifully drafted and naturalistic as she turns and reaches for a flower. Behind her are what appear to be giant monsterra leaves; in front a ti plant frames the composition, drawing the viewer's eye into the center.
Signed and titled in graphite in lower margin.
Age: Circa 1930s/1940s.
