About the artist:
David Howard Hitchcock (1861-1943) was born in Hilo, Hawaii, and first studied drawing at Punahou School in Honolulu, then the California School of Design in San Francisco. He was a student of Jules Tavernier in Hilo and Honolulu. After studying painting in Paris, he returned to Hawaii in 1893 and began a serious examination of its landscape. His finest period as a landscapist was from about 1905 to 1930, during which he traveled extensively throughout the Islands of Hawaii, drawing inspiration as he went. He also executed dramatic views of Hawaii for display on vessels of the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Company. A founder of the Kilohana Art League in 1894, he exhibited constantly and had several works at the April 1927 opening of the Honolulu Academy of Arts. His paintings were also presented at the Alaska-Yukon Exposition in Seattle in 1907 and the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915.
