Blanche LAZZELL
Date
circa 1930
Description

Initialed in the block, lower left. This is a fine impression of this very rare print. The paper is a thin Japanese and the margins are full. The condition is fine apart from a small, barely visible 1/2" tear at the top edge at left and another tiny split at the bottom. This endearing Provincetown image captures the essence of what was happening in this New England artists community during the 1920s and 1930s. The sheet was first printed (or applied by hand) with this vibrant background color and then the image and text were printed, possibly from two separate blocks. This charming print is illustrated on page one of "From Paris to Provincetown: Blanche Lazzell and the Color Woodcut (2002). (Shapiro/MFA 52).
