historical notes Anna Rice Cooke, nee Anna Charlotte Rice, was an art collector and founder of the Honolulu Academy of Arts.

Cooke collected Japanese art, antiquities, 18th and 19th century paintings and local Hawaiian artists. The collection included 300 ukiyo-e woodblock prints of the Edo period (1615-1868) and paintings by, among others, Charles W. Bartlett (1860 - 1940), Thomas Hickey (1741 – 1824), Paul Gauguin (1848 – 1903), Camille Pissarro (1830 – 1903), Lionel Walden (1861 – 1933), Jean-François Millet (1814 - 1875), James McNeill Whistler (1834 - 1903).

Cooke was from a family of New England missionaries and married Charles Montague Cooke (1849–1909) in 1874. He too came from a family of wealthy missionaries. They had three children: C M Cooke, Jr. (1874–1948), Clarence Hyde Cooke (1876–1944) and George Paul Cooke (1882-1960).
