SKU: 21 Category: Tags: ,


Blanche Lazzell (1878-1956), a cubist painter known for her white line woodcuts, received a degree from West Virginia University in 1905. She later studied at the Art Students League, as well as in Paris and Provincetown, Mass.

As she continued her studies, her work became more and more informed by modernism; however, it was her involvement in Hans Hofmann’s drawing class in 1937 which helped Lazzell return to abstraction.
