Days of Grace: California Artist Grace Hudson in Hawaii

from 24.95

Karen Holmes and Sherrie Smith-Ferri

The year was 1901. Well-known artist Grace Hudson was on the verge of a nervous collapse from overwork. Her husband, John Hudson, had just been hired by Chicago’s Field Columbian Museum to travel the backcountry of California, collecting artifacts from Native Americans living there. The couple set out in different directions: John to Chicago and Grace to Hawaii–where she was determined to recover her health, and zest for life. Both would examine their marriage in the eleven months whey were apart. In this richly illustrated and documented story, told for the first time, the authors recount Grace Hudson’s experiences in the Islands during one of the most difficult, and rewarding, years of her life. Here readers will be introduced to other artists with whom Grace crossed paths, and meet the memorable individuals who befriended her. A complete portfolio of Hudson’s 1901 work presents her lovely, and loving, portraits of the Hawaiian people. 144 pages in color. Available in softcover, and hardcover with slipcase. Published in 2014.
