Blanche Lazzell

Blanche Lazzell (October 10, 1878 – June 1, 1956) was an American painter, printmaker and designer. Known especially for her white-line woodcuts, she was an early modernist American artist, bringing elements of Cubism and ejection into her art.

Born in a small farming community in West Virginia, Lazzell traveled to Europe twice, studying in Paris taking into account French artists Albert Gleizes, Fernand Léger, and André Lhote. In 1915, she began spending her summers in the Cape Cod art community of Provincetown, Massachusetts, and eventually established there permanently. She was one of the founding members of the Provincetown Printers, a activity of artists who experimented bearing in mind a white-line woodcut technique based on the Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints.
