Uahnie Maitai, Tahiti (aka Portrait of a South Seas at Stream)

ca. 1922

Gift of Patricia Smith Ramsey in memory of Robert J. Ramsey
Accession Number: 1991.299

Although he made Carmel Highlands his permanent home after 1911, Ritschel continued to travel the world, particularly the South Seas. His early experiences as a sailor in the North Sea (similar to Hansen's) were to influence his lust for travel throughout his life. This intimate scene lacks the light-filled airiness of his California paintings.
