Went to an estate sale this morning and just picked up an exquisite 16X20 print of a Hawaiian beauty kneeling on a grass mat, entitled "Leilani."
The signature is difficult to understand, but I believe it says "TJ Mundortt, Honolulu-'43-" There is a printed copyright in the bottom corner, "1943 Kahuna Kraft."
Does anyone know about this artist or print?( I could email an image if you want to see it.) Please fill me in so I can know background of this new item in my
collection.

Would I be breaking any rules by showing the undressed wahine???
I tried to include it in my original post but everything got dumped immediately. I guess I'm not savy with the secret ritual of posting photos. I'll email it to you Geoff......

wana sell it? The artist is Ted Mundorff. He did mainley tropical Hawaiian flowers. He was artist here on Oahu.

She's knealing on a lahala mat with I tink a banann leaf behind her with also a sun...sound about right?

I collect some of his work as well as Tip Freeman and Hale Pua. I like da diamond head paintings as well as da wahines. I've been looking fo dat print fo sometime now.

If you don't want to sell it no worries, i jus gotta keep looking and enjoy your print.

Aloha

Gecko, you handsome devil, you described the print precisely!!
Even though you have the power to charm me into selling it, I'm going to keep it for now . I want to hang it between my August Holland and Hukilau '03 prints. However, if I change my mind, you'll be the first to know!!!!

Gecko,
I know, I know... I thought about not posting the auction cause I didn't want to make someone angry that was hoping no one would notice it, but the painting already had quite a few bids.
Let me know if you find any cheap Leeteg's.
