BLANCHE LAZZELLE: The Life and Work of an American Modernist
A member of the prominent art communities of Paris and Provincetown, MA during the ’20s and ’30s, Blanche Lazzell was always on the fringe of important developments in the modern art world. Her studies in Paris led her to adopt the techniques of modernism as well as other emerging styles. Among her groundbreaking works were some of the first examples of abstraction in America. Blanche Lazzell: The Life and Work of an American Modernist is a significant contribution to the history of twentieth-century American art.
Know primarily as a Provincetown printmaker, Lazzell’s full life and career are presented here, generously accompanied by color reproductions of her work, showing the breadth of her accomplishment in painting, printmaking, and hooked rugs. Lazzell’s true contribution to American art history was never fully appreciated during her lifetime. In Blanche Lazzell: The Life and Work of an American Modernist, nine essays and hundreds of full-color illustrations bring this incredibly talented and influential artist’s work to life. Edited by Robert Bridges, Kristina Olson, and Janet Snyder.
