The artist; Thomas Gilcrease, Tulsa, OK, 1950; present owner

This is likely the painting titled Hawaiian Seed Pods that appeared in Hawaiian and Taos Paintings at Gump's Fine Art Gallery in Honolulu in 1931.
 
Sharp's sales ledgers indicate that Gilcrease purchased this still life directly from the artist in January 1950. (Sharp Papers)
