Oil on Canvas
13.5″ x 9″
Provenance: This painting was from President William Howard Taft’s personal collection.

Lionel Walden (1861-1933) first studied art in Paris under E. A. Carolus-Duran. A frequent exhibitor in the Paris Salons, he received medals in 1900 and 1903 and was made a Knight of the French Legion of Honor in 1910. Walden also exhibited to acclaim at the Saint Louis Exposition of 1900 and the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915.
After his first visit to Hawaii in 1911, by the invitation of fellow artist Kimo Wilder, Walden returned frequently during World War I. Although he specialized in seascapes, he also produced remarkable landscapes and volcano scenes. He also gave private lessons and, in collaboration with D. Howard Hitchcock and other artists, produced murals for public buildings in Honolulu.
