HAWAII'S BEAUTIES OF FORM AND

Mr. Duncan Smith's Canvases;
Displayed by Kilohana I
Art League ;
Perhaps not the majority, but cer- i
taiiily u lum number of those who :
were present at the exhibition of the '
pictures of Mr. Duncan Smith at the j
Kilohana Art lacue laht night were j
Mirpnsed at the splendid work of the i
arlut who, though he has been work-,
inn bet' lor nearly six months, haa .
done his work so very quietly that
latt nitrfit's exhibition eanie as a rev
elation 'o those privileged to behold
il tfi first time.
lint It this and his modesty concern
Mi; his paintings were among the
many phasing qualities of the artist.
There were thirty-Hub? paintings
shown at the Art Ia .;-.::e, and each
one seemed a little better than the
other. The canvases show scenes on
Hawaii, Maui and Oahu. To one who
is familiar with the scenes in Hawai
ian life the portrayal of the cattle
shipping at Kawaihae could not have
been more real or more true to life.
The cattle that surrounded the boat
tied to It by their horns, the boatmen
and the cow boy with his pony most
covered with water, are all so deftly
portrayed that one could almost hear
the swish-8 washing of the wateri the
bellows of the animals, the good-natured
expletive of the cow boy and
the tourist's, "Oh, what a shame."
Canvas number one, "The Water
fall, VVaimea," attracted much atten
tion and was a close rival to canvas
"The Blue Parasol." This seemed
to be a favorite with the majority of
the spectators as well as with the ar
tist himself, who acknowledged that
he thought it the most beautiful paint
ing in the room. It hung at the en
trance of the room and met the first
gaze of all who entered. This showed
u girl sitting in a wicker chair (her
back to the artist), gazing into a large
blue parasol. There were several
paintings that depicted this same
young woman, who is the artist's
niece, Jiiss Elise Miles, well known
in Honolulu having visited here but
a short time ago.
Island people are familiar with
paintings of Rainbow Falls on Hawaii,
still Slr. Smith's canvas of these falls
seemed to have a new and different
touch. His grasping of the Hawaiian
coloring, so new to him, is wonderful,
and one who has made the Islands his
home could hardly Have done better.
To ,the minds of, many, never iias a
newcomer been able lo do such true
work as has this young man'. The

The guests were received upon the
broad Ianai of the mansion by Hon.
