About this Item

Cecil Gamlin “O’Why’he Voyaging Canoe in Hawaiian Waters” Signed and dated: “Cecil Gamlin. London Missionary Society. 1878.” Gouache watercolor on paper 8 1/2” x 13 1/4”; 19” x 24” framed (measurements in inches) Even a century after Captain Cook’s death the sense of adventure and exoticism with which Europeans regarded the South Pacific and the Pacific Islands in general had not waned. English missionaries fulfilled many roles as they traveled the globe, including that of providing visual documentation of what they encountered. Cecil Gamlin was a missionary and an artist who worked not just as an English emissary to the islanders, but endeavored to return to Europe with images of the natives that would make them more familiar, and less a people to be feared. This gouache scene of Hawaii is beautifully colored. It highlights the striking landscapes of the Hawaiian islands, while also illustrating the maritime customs of the Hawaiian people.
