Title   Dole Hawaii
Date Of Work   1950
Dimensions   19 x 29"
Notes   Original antique poster; horizontal format Hawaiian Islands poster. Feher was a master of adding the tropical fish of Hawaii into his artwork. A clipper plain is shown in the middle of the sky as it cruises in for an island landing. Sailing schooners, cargo ships, luxury passanger and fishing boats are all shown floating off the coast of the Hawaiin Islands. Normally Feher hid his signature inside the artwork, but his signature is shown in the lower right corner.
A beautiful map for the islands from a series of maps that Dole published beginning in the 1930's. This map from 1950 is in a more painterly pictorial style leaving behind the cartoonish vignettes of earlier edition for a watercolor-esque approach that contains a wealth of interest. Each island is shown with vignettes particular to its local culture and is noted in an exhaustive key to the right of the image.
