The Jean Charlot Collection at the University of Hawaii at Manoa is an extensive archive of art works and documents relating to the artist and writer Jean Charlot (1898-1979) and to other artists, intellectuals, and friends he worked with or knew in his long career in France, Mexico, the mainland United States, and Hawaii.
This guide showcases the work of four photographic artists Charlot knew and worked with, linked to the work of each by the tabs at the top of this page.
This is just a sampling of the fine art photographs and portraits of Jean Charlot in the Collection. Francis Haar, the Hungarian born photographer who settled in Hawaii, photographed Charlot numerous times starting in the early 1960s. The Francis Haar Collection is a separate, related Hawaii artist archive in the Hamilton Library.
