Portrait of Levi Haalelea, 1864.

[Found under: “NA MEA HOU O HAWAII NEI.”]

Portrait of Haalelea.—The haole which we spoke of the other week has painted a Portrait of Levi Haalelea who has passed, and it is now in the photography studio of Chase (Keiki). It remains victorious, and has not lessened at all, as if he is still living, it is just missing his voice coming forth.

[Here is the article mentioning the artist’s name. And here is another found in the Pacific Commercial Advertiser with more data.

Does anyone know the whereabouts of this painting by famous painter Enoch Wood Perry Jr.? I would appreciate it if you all might repost this article wherever you think an answer could be found!]

(Kuokoa, 12/24/1864, p. 2)
