(Menu - Hawaiiana) Mokattam Temple No. 12. Aloha Luncheon

12x8.75", 2 pp. Artwork by Frank Macintosh of three Hawaiian women, 2 holding baskets of Hawaiian fruits, and one picking bananas. [Honolulu: Matson Lines]: March 7, 1959.
Frank Macintosh was commissioned by the Matson Line in the 1930's to make a series of menu covers promoting Hawaii as a destination. His work is reminiscent of Diego Rivera's and other Mexican muralists of the time, though his subject was Hawaiian women, flowers, fish, and other island specialties. His work is highly collectible as ocean liner memorabilia and as Hawaiiana.
This particular menu used Macintosh's artwork for an Aloha Luncheon for the Mokattam Temple No. 12 Daughters of the Nile, honoring Queen Marjorie Kessel. The luncheon was all Hawaiian dishes. Near fine.
