Reproduction Hawaiian Flowers
(Theodore) Ted Mundorff
He was born in 1910 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but was educated at the prestigious private school of Punaho in Honolulu. After school he returned to the mainland and painted cars for the Ford Motor Company in Detroit. Returning to Hawaii in 1936 with his wife and son, he opened an artists studio called "Hawaiian Pallet" in Honolulu, painting reef fishes of Hawaii. He died in November of 1969.
He was considerably tallented, especially with air-brush and produced a prolific amount of paintings, mostly of local flowers but sometimes of native Hawaiians. In 1943 his illustrations were used for the book "In an Old Hawaiian Garden", published in Honolulu, with text by Don Blanding. This is now a collectors item and quite scarce.
The following reproductions have been taken from this original book and are an exact likeness with beautiful tonal shading, excellent quality and perfect for framing.
