Edna Boies Hopkins: Strong in Character, Colorful in Expression
Catalogue for the 2006 PAAM exhibition.
Author Dominique H. Vasseur
Edna Boies Hopkins (1872–1937) is best known for her floral woodblock prints that range from delicate Japanese-inspired stylizations to boldly colored and progressively modernist works. In her brief twenty-year career, Hopkins produced seventy-four known woodblock prints, including figurative work and landscapes as well as floral compositions. This catalogue is the first in-depth study of this once well-known American artist. It illustrates all of Hopkins’s known prints, related drawings, and studies. In addition, Edna Boies Hopkins includes much new biographical research along with a census of her prints and a comprehensive list of her exhibitions.
