Artstor is sharing 101 images of artworks by Louis Henri Jean Charlot (1898–1979) from the Jean Charlot Collection at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa.
Charlot’s output of drawings, paintings, murals, prints, sculptures, illustrations and cartoons, as well as books, articles, and other writings was prodigious. Wherever he lived—whether in France, Mexico, New York, Georgia, Colorado, Hawai‘i or Fiji—his life was full of significant connections with artists and writers, indigenous and working people, influential figures in art and educational institutions, and the Roman Catholic Church. He preserved the records of his encounters, together with those of his own creative and scholarly life, in the original artworks, archival documents, research photographs, audiovisual materials, memorabilia and the publications of his personal library that became the basis of the Jean Charlot Collection.
