Art by Hawaiians at Sana Lui, 1888.


We went to tour the school of Saint Louis these past days and drawing which is outside of the regular work from their books is what we were most impressed with at their skill, talent, and true excellence in that activity. These are the majority of the paintings which we  acquired.

A painting of the deceased Princess Likelike drawn by William Cuelho; a painting of Princess Kaiulani, the recently deceased Emperor William of Germany, and Napoleon I, drawn by Zero Kakina; a painting of King Alfonzo of Spain drawn by William Hoapili; a painting of a house beneath a mountain and on the banks of a river, and the Lord’s prayer, drawn by W. F. Kaae; that is one of the things which we had great admiration for in his excellence in drawing and painting.
