Exhibition Announcement -  LAZZELL

Exhibition Announcement
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1930, Shapiro/MFA 52, edition unknown. (image) 7 1/2 x 3 3/4 in. (sheet) 10 1/2 x 5 5/8 in. 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).

Provincetown Studio -  LAZZELL

Provincetown Studio
Woodcut, 1933, Clarkson 96, edition 45. 8 x 5 in. Signed, dated and titled in ink. A fine impression rich with contrasts. Full margins. Fine condition. (Subtle suggestions of foxing here and there but overall, a minor consideration.) Lazzell returned again and again to depictions of her studio building in Provincetown. A rare work.
