Genevieve Springston Lynch 1891 - 1960
Honolulu Harbor, August 1941
Watercolor on Paper
19 x 25 in (48.26 x 63.50 cm)
Fine vibrant colors, signed and dated August 1941 at lower right. A view of ships arriving and perhaps preparing to depart Honolulu in the first summer following the start of WW II. The docks are not busy with tourists as one would expect during any time other than in the beginning of the war in the Pacific. Matson's ships at this time were destined to be commissioned by the navy to transport troops around the Pacific Theater.
