Nicolls-Mountain

  • Family
  • 1805-1909

The Nicolls and Mountain families lived in Quebec and Lennoxville in the nineteenth century. The founders of the connection were George Jehoshaphat Mountain, a young Anglican clergyman, and Gustavus Nicolls, a Captain of Engineers. Mountain married Mary Hume Thomson, the daughter of a British official in Quebec in 1814. Nicolls married Mary Thomson's elder sister Heriot Frances, in 1812. Gustavus Nicolls became Commander of Royal Engineers in Canada, while Mountain became Bishop of Quebec. In 1845, Mountain appointed his nephew, Jasper Nicolls, the General's third son, as Principal of the newly established Anglican institution in Lennoxville, Bishop's College. Jasper fell in love with his cousin Harriet, the Bishop's daughter. They were married in Quebec in 1847. The correspondence which flowed between the Mountain family in Quebec and the Nicolls family in Lennoxville provided the basis for Ten Rings on the Oak, 1847-1856 by Donald C. Masters and Marjorie W. Masters.

Fraser, Juliette May (1887-1983)

  • 1996_008
  • Person
  • 1887- 1983

Honolulu-born artist Juliette May Fraser is perhaps best known for the murals she painted around the world. She also portrayed Hawaiian legends and other themes through linoleum cut, oil painting, ceramic, and fresco.

Juliette May Fraser was born on January 27, 1887 in Honolulu. After graduating from Wellesley College in Massachusetts, she worked as an educator, like her mother and father who had come to the islands to teach. "That was practically the only thing a woman could do then," she told an interviewer a few years before her death in 1983. But her heart since childhood had been captured by art, so she saved her salary to study at the Art Students League in New York.
Fraser is also noted for her print-works, and was associated with Honolulu Print-makers, which is said to be the oldest continuously active printmaking organization in the United States. The group was founded in 1928 by a group of local artists in an effort to encourage the art of printmaking in Hawaii. Each year, one of the organization's members is selected to create a special print. Along with Juliette May Fraser, some of the print-makers of yesteryear - John Melville Kelly, Huc-Mazelet Luquiens, Cornelia Macintyre Foley, Isami Doi, Madge Tennant, Jean Charlot, John Young and others - became world-renowned artists, their prints now demanding much higher sums than the original $5 price.

Juliette May Fraser died in July of 1983 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Kelly, John Melville (1877-1962)

  • 1996_007
  • Person
  • 1877-1962

John Melville Kelly was born in Oakland, California on November 2, 1877. Raised on a ranch outside of Phoenix, Arizona, Kelly decided to return to the Bay Area as a young adult to pursue an education in art and design. He studied at the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art and the Partington Art School, and with artist Eric Spencer Mackey. Kelly's work as a freelance artist came on the heels of a fourteen year career as an illustrator and graphic designer for the San Francisco Examiner. In 1923 developer Charles Frazier offered Kelly an opportunity to illustrate Frazier's Lanikai building plans. It was meant to last a year, but Kelly and his wife, sculptor Kate Kelly, ended up staying there after falling in love with the landscape and people of the islands.

It was Kate's pursuit of printmaking, under the tutelage of Huc-Mazelet Luquiens, that sparked John's own interest in the decidedly different artistic medium. John began pursuing etching with great interest, eventually working almost exclusively in dry-point and then aquatint. His work shows his fascination with the subtlety allowed in the aquatint technique, his experiment with the manipulation of color directly on the plate producing a tonal effect not achieved with etching. His subject matter was nearly entirely images of the people and surroundings he'd grown to love. John Kelly was the author and illustrator of "Etchings and Drawings of Hawaiians" published in 1943 and also "The Hula as Seen in Hawaii" published in 1955.
The Hawaii State Art Museum, the Honolulu Academy of Arts, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (Kansas City, Missouri), Saint Joseph College Art Gallery (West Hartford, Connecticut) and the San Diego Museum of Art (San Diego, California) are among the public collections holding his work. John Melville Kelly died in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA in on September 9, 1962.

Bartlett, Charles William (1860-1940)

  • Person
  • 1860-1940

Charles Bartlett was born in England in 1860. He began his education with the intention of becoming a chemist, but switched to fine art, enrolling at the Academy of Art in London at the age of twenty-three. From there he went to Paris to further his studies at the Academie Julian. After he lost his wife and infant son in childbirth, the artist spent a year traveling in Europe with fellow artist Frank Brangwyn. It was at this time that his work maintained a focus on the daily lives of peasant women and children, and began to hone his watercolor and drawing techniques. It wouldn't be until much later that Bartlett, now returned to England and remarried, would discover his love of printmaking and the landscape subject matter he would become known for.
In 1913 he and his wife traveled to Ceylon, Indonesia, and China to sketch and paint. 1915 hailed their arrival in Japan, where they met Austrian artist Fritz Capelari who introduced them to publisher Watanabe Shozaburo. Watanabe and Bartlett began a long collaboration in which Watanabe would turn the watercolor landscapes of Bartlett's into color woodcuts; soon, Bartlett himself would use Watanabe's studio to carve and create his own woodblocks.
In 1917, the Bartlett's traveled to Hawaii, intending to make a short visit. However, they fell in love with the landscape and community where they were visiting, and soon established their lives and Charles' career there. He became a co-founder of the Honolulu Print-makers and a prominent member of Hawaii's artistic community until his death in 1940 at the age of eighty.

Cornelia MacIntyre Foley (1909-2010) was born in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi, began her art training under Huc-Mazelet Luquiens at the University of Hawaiʻi, continued at the University of Washington, and spent two years in London at the Slade School as a pupil of Henry Tonks. She returned to Honolulu in 1934, whereupon she befriended and studied under Madge Tennent. In 1937, she married Paul Foley, a lieutenant in the Navy. From 1937 to 1942, the couple lived in Long Beach, California, and Seattle, Washington. Her oils and acrylics include portraits and landscapes. Besides numerous exhibitions around the country, her artwork is held in public places such as the Honolulu Museum of Art, the National Print Collection at the Library of Congress, and the University of Hawaiʻi.
With an extraordinary mastery of figurative drawing, Foley was able to fuse the sensuous with the hypnotic in her unique views of the human essence. Her famous Hawaiian Woman in White Holoku (1937, Honolulu Academy of Arts) epitomizes the elements of her drawn and painted works, which continue to enchant and inspire viewers to this day. She died in 2010.

  • 1936-

Kieff Antonio Grediaga was born in 1936 in Madrid, Spain. He began working as an apprentice in his father's cabinet making atelier at a young age, later going on to study technical drawing, industrial design and architecture. Kieff's works have been exhibited in galleries, fairs and institutions in Canada, the USA, Japan, Hong Kong, and Europe. Largely inspired by music, the stage and literature, Kieff's work has always been fueled by the quest to find himself through a study of space and time and by a relentless desire to experience, manifest and share what can be considered the state of freedom. Whether sculptural or graphic, his works are an intriguing embodiment of the lyrical relationship between mass, volumes, rhythm, movement and a profound intimate reflection on his own human condition. Kieff lives and work in Montreal where he continues to develop new works.

Forrestall, Tom (1936- )

  • 1936-

Thomas deVany Forrestall is a Canadian painter born in Middleton, Nova Scotia in 1936. After graduating in 1958 from Mount Allison University (where he studied with Alex Colville), Tom Forrestall was assistant curator at Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton in 1959. The following year he became a full time painter. His realistic works, often done in egg tempera, convey his ideas of the East Coast landscape and its dwellings. From the early 1960s, Forrestall experimented with panel shaped from triangle to T-forms; each chose to fit his painterly ideas. He also painted a large number of out-of-doors watercolours, which express much the same ideas as his egg tempera work, but in a more relaxed, and joyous mood. His watercolours, in contrast to his more metaphysical and individual canvases, form one long series and deal with sense of place. He became an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1986.
