William Woodward (American/New Orleans, 1859-1939), "The Pali, Island of Oahu, Hawaii", 1925, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left, titled en verso, signed, titled, inscribed and period "Art Association of New Orleans" exhibition label on stretcher, "Montgomery Gallery, San Francisco" label with artist and title on backing board, 22 1/4 in. x 28 1/4 in., original frame Exh. Laguna Beach Art Association, 1926; Art Association of New Orleans Annual Exhibition, 1927. Note: The Pali, which is the Hawaiian word for cliff, is a particular section of the Ko’olau mountain range on the island of Oahu. This delightful view of the cliffs, which are located to the northeast of Honolulu, has long been a treasured one on the island of Oahu. From the composition created by William Woodward, with the Pali on the left and the northern Ko’olau range on the right, he would have been painting from the Kaneohe area of the island, near Kaneohe Bay. Woodward traveled to Hawaii by sea as an extension of a trip throughout the western United States in the mid-1920s, including Yellowstone National Park and southern California. As always with his oil paintings, Woodward’s characteristic brushwork and palette add to the charm and natural beauty of the scene. His portrayal of the lush landscape with the clouds just obscuring the peak of the Pali demonstrates Woodward’s clear mastery of the oil medium as well as his talent in crafting a graceful and balanced composition. Exhibited twice in the years following its completion, this important canvas must have been highly prized by the artist.
