Linen backed. Inpainting along horizontal fold just above lower text; expertly repaired tears and replaced small losses at top and bottom edges with inpainting; scattered slight creases and small blemishes in image. B+/B. Feher was born in Hungary and received his education at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest and the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. He emigrated to the United States after World War I, settling in Chicago and continuing his training at the Art Institute of Chicago. He designed a number of posters for United Airlines and Dole Pineapples. In an interview given in 1986, Feher reported that United Airlines president William A. Patterson invited him to Hawaii in 1946 for United’s inaugural trip. Feher created 10 watercolors for United on that trip which were published as Christmas presents to the airline’s executives. During this trip, Feher visited the Honolulu Academy of Arts, where he would later join the faculty after permanently moving to Hawaii.
