A Treasure of Hawaii Passes Away

March 9, 2011

Herb Kane was commissioned by the National Park Service in 1976 to paint "Keoua's Arrival", which is on permanent display in the Visitor Center at Pu`ukohola Heiau National Historic Site.

We are sad to hear of Hawaiian artist and historian Herb Kawainui Kane’s death this week. He was a great friend to the National Parks in Hawaii. Whether in the form of artwork on wayside exhibits, brochures, multimedia, or in original artwork, Herb Kane’s passion and knowledge of Hawaii and her people will continue to be told through the incredibly rich artwork he has left behind. Herb Kane will be greatly missed. Aloha.

    To Whom It May Concern:
    I live in wi. u.s.a I have 4 oil painting of Herb Kane painted. 1 oil of the fish market that was in a book 32’x24; 1 watercolor and a chalk portrait(of herb when he was young 20.s?) I have some letters he wrote to his 2nd cousin while he was in the Navy. How do I go about getting these appraised or selling these?
    Thank you for your time: Eileen
