JEAN CHARLOT COLLECTION IN ARTSTOR

charlot1

The Visual Resources Center (VRC) at the Department of Art and Art History and the UHM Jean Charlot Collection have collaborated to contribute over 300 images of artworks by Jean Charlot (1898-1979) via ARTstor. Now high quality images from the Jean Charlot Collection are part of 2 million images that you can download for educational purposes through the ARTstor Digital Library, among other images by the world’s leading museums.

Jean Charlot (born in Paris; died in Honolulu), a former faculty member of the Department of Art and Art History at UHM, was a prolific artist, art historian, author and poet, widely known for his fresco murals. His works were strongly influenced by the places he lived – France, Mexico, New York, Georgia, Colorado, Fiji and Hawai’i – and the indigenous and working peoples of these places.

The new images from the Jean Charlot Collection include his murals on UHM campus as well as ones throughout Honolulu and on the neighbor islands. There also are images of his drawings, paintings, prints, sculptures, illustrations, cartoons and photographs.

To access the images, log in to ARTstor, under Browse click Collection, or HERE.

Originally from Northern Ireland Jacqueline is based in Hawai‘i. She creates conceptual objects that often question and re-contextualize their original materials and conventional use, often blurring the line between genres, or seeking to push the technical boundaries and expectations of a particular medium. Jacqueline has worked primarily with the book form for eighteen years. She received her MFA from UHM in 2000.

Select group exhibitions include: Odd Volumes: Book Art from the Allan Chasanoff Collection (Yale University Art Gallery), Boundless:The Book Transformed in Contemporary Art (Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum), The Book Borrowers: Contemporary Artists Transforming the Book (Bellevue Arts Museum), Unhinged: Book Art on the Cutting Edge (Whatcom Museum), Metamorphosis: The Art of Altered Books (Fuller Craft Museum), and NextNewPaper (San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art). Jacqueline is working on a solo exhibition in the Fall of 2017 at the Honolulu Museum of Art.
